阿巴斯 Abbas

1981年加入玛格南MAGNUM

1985年成为玛格南正式成员


我的作品是那些正在生活中发生的,能够带给人思考的事物的倒影,那些丛取景器中看过去的时刻,仿佛自己跑进来一般,凝固在那里。


这位被外界公认天生的摄影师的阿巴斯1944年出生于伊朗,后移居巴黎,1981年加入马格南,1985年成为正式成员。他一生致力于记录社会冲突中的政治和社会生活。他的主要作品包括战争和革命时期的北爱尔兰,孟加拉,越南,中东,智利,古巴、种族隔离时期的南非以及伊朗大革命。

 

1978年至1980年期间, Abbas 拍摄了大量关于伊朗大革命的照片,并于自我流放17年后(1997年)回到伊朗。此后,他以个人视角拍摄并写作而成的《伊朗日记1971-2002》是一本关于伊朗历史的权威著作。在他多年的流放生涯中,Abbas 经常到处旅行。 1983年至1986年间, Abbas 来到墨西哥,试图像小说家写作一般去拍摄这个国家。其后他举办的《回到墨西哥:掩饰之外的旅程》的展览以及出版的同名书籍,一举奠定了他的摄影美学地位。

 

19871994年期间,他将镜头聚焦在世界范围内伊斯兰教的复兴上。他出版了《真主万能:一次透视好战穆斯林的旅程》一书,并在4个大洲29个国家举办了同名的展览。在911袭击后,这部作品引起了人们特别的关注。其后,他又出版了《基督教的不同面:一次摄影之旅》(2000),从政治、礼仪以及精神现象等层面对基督教进行了一次广泛的探索。

 

2000年,出于对宗教的关注,他开始了一项关于万物有灵论的计划,他试图从中找到非理性的礼仪越来越多地和科学技术结合起来的原因。 2002年,911事件1周年的时候,他放弃了这一计划,转而投向一项关于宗教碰撞的长期研究工作。他认为宗教更像是一种文化而非信仰,并且坚信在当今世界的战略竞争中,宗教正在逐渐取代政治意识形态的地位。


从2008年到2010年,阿巴斯周游世界的佛教圣地,带着同样怀疑的眼光用镜头记录世界。2013年,他完成了一个类似的关于印度教的长期项目。目前,阿巴斯致力于世界的犹太教事业。

“My photography is areflection, which comes to life in action and leads to meditation. Spontaneity- the suspended moment - intervenes during action, in the viewfinder. ”


Born a photographer,Abbas is an Iranian transplanted to Paris. He has dedicated himself todocumenting the political and social life of societies in conflict. In hismajor work since 1970 he has covered wars and revolutions in Biafra,Bangladesh, Northern Ireland, Vietnam, the Middle East, Chile, Cuba, and SouthAfrica during apartheid.

From 1978 to 1980, Abbas photographed the revolution in Iran, to which hereturned in 1997 after seventeen years of voluntary exile. His book Iran Diary1971-2002 is a critical interpretation of Iranian history, photographed andwritten as a private journal.

During his years of exile Abbas traveled constantly. Between 1983 and 1986 hejourneyed through Mexico, attempting to photograph a country as a novelistmight write about it. The resulting exhibition and book, Return to Mexico:Journeys Beyond the Mask, helped define his photographic aesthetic.

From 1987 to 1994, he focused on the resurgence of Islam throughout the world.Allah O Akbar: A Journey Through Militant Islam, the subsequent book andexhibition, spanning twenty-nine countries and four continents, attractedspecial attention after the 9/11 attacks by Islamic jihadists. A later book,Faces of Christianity: A Photographic Journey (2000), and touring show exploredChristianity as a political, ritual and spiritual phenomenon

Abbas' concern with religion led him in 2000 to begin a project on animism, inwhich he sought to discover why non-rational ritual has re-emerged in a worldincreasingly defined by science and technology. He abandoned this undertakingin 2002, on the first anniversary of 9/11, to start a new long-term projectabout the clash of religions, defined as culture rather than faith, which hebelieves are turning into political ideologies and therefore one of the sourcesof the strategic struggles of the contemporary world.

From 2008 to 2010 Abbastravelled the world of Buddhism, photographing with the same sceptical eye. In2013 he concluded a similar long term project on Hinduism. Abbas is presentlyworking on Judaism around the world.

A member of Sipa from 1971 to 1973, then of Gamma from 1974 to 1980, Abbasjoined Magnum Photos in 1981 and became a member in 1985.
