DESCRIPTION (ENG)

In the old days, the masters of photography used to use photo-specific watercolors to add color to blank and white photos turning them into color photos. These special watercolors were condensed onto paper and sold as color books which have been discontinued for decades since color photo printing became popular. It is a crossover between painting and photography. It is a form of manual Photoshop. It is the precious collective memories of the older generations. It is old meets new: traditional techniques with a modern painting style. We can express our creativity freely instead of just imitating reality. Using dry watercolors/photo color requires different techniques from any other coloring methods because the colors aren't always the same as what you would expect and as the surface of the photos is slippery, it doesn't absorb the color.

在彩色相還未面世前,專業影樓的師父人手一筆一筆為黑白相上色令其成為彩色照。史上第一張彩色相就是這樣出來的!六七十年代遺留下來的畫相專用顏料,加上已失傳的黑白相片上色工藝,推動普羅大眾對傳統文化工藝的關注,保存上一二代的集體回憶。顏色持久及防水丶質地細緻不影響相片原本的表面。由於顏料是透明的,所以不會蓋過影像的任何細節。顏料有紙狀、液狀和膏狀的。紙狀顏料濃縮成乾的狀態附在紙上,色紙上看見的顏色並不是真正的顏色,用時開水才顯現出真正的色彩。液狀的濃縮到看上去大都像黑和紅。 相片調師傅息微的原因是存在價值現在已不再。為了傳承,我加入了繪畫藝術的元素,令其成為攝影crossover繪畫。相片上色不再停留於模仿真實,而是在固有畫面中仍能發揮無限創意。單改變顏色令相中的時間、意景、人的性格都不同了。可索性極高。彩色相也可以上色。改變光影令形狀也改 - 肥可變廋,鼻可變高。有如為相片化妝。 藝術是timeless的。過去、現在、將來都需要的。
