无论摄影纪录集还是顽皮的艺术雕塑,Toledano’的作品都带着高度的概念化风格。用他自己的话说,就像夹着推理和根本原理的总汇三明治一样。但是他的新书《与父亲在一起的日子》却不是这样。这部作品的初衷很简单:2006年Toledano的母亲过世后,他开始用相机记录和晚年的父亲一起生活的时光。“我拍摄的照片很少,总共也许就一百张或者一百五十张。我不想让摄影的过程喧宾夺主,陪伴父亲才是更重要的事情。”后来,Toledano 把这些照片上传到博客,配以简单的文字,有的很有趣,有的很平实。照片的影响是轰动性的,到现在全球的读者们的留言已经有上万条了。人类本真感情的影响力由此可证。
Whether he’s working on a documentary photography series or an impish art installation, Toledano’s work tends to be highly conceptual, “a club sandwich of reasoning and rationale,” as he puts it. But his new book, “Days with My Father,” is different. The premise is simple: after Toledano’s mother died, in 2006, Toledano started taking photographs of his father, documenting their relationship in what would be his father’s final years. “I took very few pictures, maybe a hundred or a hundred and fifty total,” Toledano said. “I didn’t want the picture-taking process to overwhelm being with my father.” After a while, Toledano started posting the photos on a blog, along with simple text, some funny, some painful. The response was overwhelming; to date, viewers from around the world have left more than ten thousand comments on the series, a testament to its unforced emotional power.
这些照片拍得简单随意,Toledano说“我欣赏这样的照片,他们看起来就像还未完成的句子,而剩下的一半句子,就由看照片的人去完成”。不过,Toledano的父亲不喜欢这些照片。Toledano说:“很滑稽,我告诉他说我只是在为纽约客拍照片,他说‘奥,很好,那你还在干什么呢’,我说,我用相机拍下我们的照片,记录我们在一起的生活。然后父亲说,‘奥,听着感觉挺好啊。你真是个天才。让我看看你拍的照片吧。’我给他看我的那些照片,他沉默了几分钟后说“太烂了!你再不反省反省你就得当垫底的了,清醒点吧!”我说:“一分钟之前我还是天才,现在怎么了就成了垫底的了呢?”Toledano 告诉父亲他把照片发布到网上,父亲问他“什么是互联网?是彩色照片吗?”
The pictures are spare and unstudied. “I like photographs to be like unfinished sentences,” Toledano said. “I want the person looking to fill in the other half.” Toledano’s father hated them. “It was hilarious,” Toledano said. “I’d just taken a picture for The New Yorker, actually, and I told him that, and he said, ‘Oh, that’s fantastic. What else are you doing?’ And I said, ‘I’m taking these photographs of you and me, and documenting our lives together.’ And he said, ‘Oh, that sounds great. You’re a genius! Show me these pictures.’ So I bring them out, and he looks at them, and after a couple of minutes he goes, ‘These are terrible!’ And then he said, ‘You’re gonna be at the bottom of the pile if you don’t wake up. You gotta wake up!’ I said, ‘What happened, a minute ago I was a genius, and now I’m at the bottom of the pile?’ ” (It didn’t go much better when Toledano told his father that he’d put the photos on the Internet. “What’s the Internet?” he said. “Is it in color?”)
Toledano 说不管父亲怎么看,最重要的是他们父子俩一起度过的“焦点”下的时光。“给父亲拍照的时候,我想起了母亲的离开,过去的这几年,我的父亲母亲都走了,我的姑母还有叔叔——所有的人好像都同时离我而去,就行一颗小行星撞到了属于Toledano的一块大陆一样。家人的离去让我明白,那些 烦人的陈词滥调都是真的:也许明天你的父母就不在了,所以和父母在一起的时光很重要很重要。这都是真的。”
Whatever his father’s reaction, the important thing, Toledano said, was the focussed time they spent together. “It took my mom dying to make me take pictures of my father,” Toledano said. “Over the past few years, both my parents died, my aunt died, my uncle—everyone croaked simultaneously, like an asteroid hit the Toledano section of the continent. One of the things I realized after the Toledano mass extinction is that all of the clichés are true, which is really annoying. When they say that your parents might be gone tomorrow, the people you love might be gone in a second, so the time you have with them is really important—it’s all true.”
