Girls Opt For Themselves 


For many years, Aco has used a camera to record her life and surrounding. Unintentionally, she captured her female friends in many photo series. People asked her, why the subject is always women?

For her, it’s through the camera and also photography, she projects her thinking upon the models, an extension of self-consciousness. Through them she can express a group condition, her own mental state and the depths of her heart. The women who cooperated with her are of similar ages and, as she begins each series, she records her own condition as well as the subject’s, rather than simply being a photo of a female.
This will be a long term photography project. I cooperated with subjects who were female physically and also mentally. Each zine is a colour section. During the shooting process, I internalise the stories of people who are the models and also combine my view with theirs.

幾年前Aco開始使用相機去記錄生活時,無意間開啟了一連串紀錄身邊女性朋友的照片系列,曾經被詢問過為何特別是女性呢?對她而言有很多時候是透過鏡頭把自己投射在模特兒身上,是一種自我意識的延伸。透過她們呈現一個群像和自己最深處的精神狀態,合作對象幾乎都是與她年紀相近的,她以女性的角度出發,所以與其說是在拍攝女性,記錄彼此當下狀態會是個更好的說法。

而這系列將會是一個持續一到兩年的長期計劃,與生心理女性合作,每一刊皆為一種色系和主題,過程中除了消化被拍攝者的故事同時也加入攝影者主觀的觀察視角,捕捉被拍攝者當下的生活碎片,透過被拍攝者所選擇的色彩及Aco所抉擇的植物之中,緩緩訴說。
