20121201031425124

因作品《阿富汗女孩》(Afghan Girl )出名的旅行摄影师Steve McCurry近日推出了一组以“印度铁路”为主题的照片。作品真实纪录了印度民众的交通生活,给读者留下了深刻印象。这组照片的题目就叫 “火车”,反映出其实大部分印度百姓出行并非娱乐观光而是迫于生计。画面中,有些乘客攀跳上已经开动的火车, 还有的坐到了铁皮车厢的厢顶。看到此情此景, 读者不由得感慨印度百姓的生活之艰辛。

印度与外界的文化差异和经济差距在这组作品中体现的淋漓尽致,同发达国家的城市车站相比,更是无法相提并论。然而,尽管印度铁路设施落后,百姓生活贫困,但McCurry的镜头还是完美纪录了其中丰富的文化内涵。他表示:“为了反映火车站常客的生活,我每天都在月台徘徊。每次火车进站,我便穿过拥挤的人群和如山的行李,拍下这般“让人眩晕”的场景,所有画面均给人以冲击和震撼之感。”

Train station, Agra, India, 1983McCurry often works in what is known as the 'golden hour'. Originally this was a term used by cinematographers to denote that time of day when the setting or rising sun casts everything in a rich golden light. As is witnessed in this image, it is a quality that brings an opulence to a scene, one in which everyday objects are infused with an intensity absent during the rest of the day.
