hk singer-song-writer Jing Wong黃靖@人山人海, pinkwork shortnews

just shot a short video of singer-song-writer Jing Wong whose debut English album “Last breath of youthful melancholy” is finally OUT this month. Jing is an artist of People Mountain People Sea, an alternative indie label founded by renowned HK musician Anthony Wong Yiu-ming. Jing earned this record deal three years ago by self-introducing himself and playing his self-written song “You are in everything I do” in front of Ming Gor (Anthony Wong). Though Jing had to wait for nearly 4 hrs in a photo studio till this music star finished his shooting job, Jing’s determination paid off. He and Ming Gor become friends since then.

Jing graduated with 1st Honours in Theatre Design from Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design. In 2006 he joined his elder sister Kay to found the fashion brand Daydream Nation. “I’ve never considered myself as a fashion designer, for me, fashion design is just a media to express my concept … and few months ago I decided to focus more on my another passion, that ‘s music.” said Jing during the interview.

又拍攝了一個「人類」,香港創作歌手黃靖,他的首張專輯《Last breath of youthful melancholy》剛剛面世。這位屬黃耀明創立的獨立廠牌「人山人海」旗下一員的創作歌手,原來三年前是靠向明哥﹝黃耀明﹞自薦及即埸自彈自唱自己作品《You are in everything I do》而獲得賞識。雖然當年他要在影樓等了足足四小時,待明哥完成拍攝的工作。不過黃靖的堅持最終都獲得回報。如今他和明哥更成了好朋友。

黃靖是英國Central Saint Martins學院舞台設計系一級榮譽畢業,2006年他和家姐黃琪創立時裝品牌Daydream Nation。「我從不當自己是時裝設計師,對於我來說,時裝不過是一種表達意念的媒介 … 兩三個月前,我已決定了未來會專注我的另一個喜好,就是音樂。」黃靖在訪問中說。想聽/看看黃靖親自講講自己的首唱片及未來計劃,可點/按下面的聲音按鈕。:idea:

HK girl band RockSugar during rehearsal 女子樂隊「搖滾堂」綵排中 …

MEOW, just shot photos and a short video of three budding female musicians last night. They’re RockSugar, a HK upcoming girl band formed in 2010, composed of three girls, namely Alina (drum), Vincci (vocal / guitar) and Cady (base/vocal). Special thank to re:spect magazine for arranging the interview. It’s a very popular HK Free magazine mainly features local bands, shows and musicians.

Holga Food photo Experiment @ agnès b. café 用Holga拍攝食物相片實驗。

MEOW, special thank to agnès b. for allowing me to do the experiemnt at their café. I just told their PRs I (a CAT from pinkwork city) would like to do some shooting experiment using my Holga plastic camera at their cafe. They were so nice and asked whether they had to prepare some specially-made cakes for my shooting. Well, it’s not necessary cause the cakes on their shop are already very colorful.

You might question how could I use this plastic camera to shoot close-up or macro photo. Its closest focus lenght is 0.7 m! Of course my Holga have to put on a Macro or Close-up Lens (bought from Holga shop, just HK$68 per set). To know more about how I shot these photo, could see my article in this issue (624, p122~p123) of “Weekend Weekly” magazine. Yes, since the experiment result is quite good, I decided to write an article about this in my “Weekend Weekly” magazine ‘s column.

真的要多謝 agnès b.公關們的幫忙,原本粉紅貓只不過是通知她們,我打算在她們的銅鑼灣café內﹝貪那裡有黑白階磚地板﹞,用Holga塑膠相機做些「食物拍攝實驗」。「放心,我只用一些Lo-fi器材,佔用餐廳一小角落,絕不會騷擾到她們的客人的」當時我跟她們說。

誰知她們十分好人,還問我要不要特別製作一些蛋糕給我拍攝。當然不用了,她們店內已有很多七彩繽紛的蛋糕。你可能奇怪Holga最近的拍攝焦距是0.7米左右,怎可能用來拍微距或近距的食物相?方法是套上一塊在「Holga專門店」有售,只是HK$68大元的塑膠微距或近攝鏡片。

結果,出來的相片依然有Holga相的「原始」風味,所以決定在我《新假期》的專欄稿,寫這個主題。想知詳情,可看看今期﹝第624期,122 ~ 123頁﹞這篇稿啦。

Just shot some photos of a French artist at agnès b.’ s LIBRAIRIE GALERIE !「b仔」藝術廊展覽

:P Yes, agnès b.’ s LIBRAIRIE GALERIE would has a new exhibition around every 3 months and pinkcat would usually come to talk to and shoot a SHORT video of the artist. This time the exhibition title is “Rezzak Coiffure” by French Artist – Franck Rezzak which features his 27 paintings, sculptures and interactive installations. You might had seen this artist’s art work before, cause he had an installation named “door no. 103” being featured in 2008 “Modern Young People” exhibition in the SAME gallery.

So what’s his solo exhibition about? It’s actually the first chapter of his “Rezzak Beauty Institute” art project. This project is about “trans-humanity” and in his HK exhibition part, the theme is HAIR STYLING, a simple way of transformation.

SOUND very abstract but I just saw this exhibition this morning and his artworks are very colorful and “BIG” scale, I would say it’s the most interesting one, well compared to the recent few exhibitions hold in the same place :idea:

date: 22 Jan ~ 07 May 2011

agnès b.藝術廊通常每隔三個月便會有一個新展覽,通常每次粉紅貓都會走去跟那位藝術家聊聊及拍一條短片。今次輪到法國藝術家Franck Rezzak的「Rezzak Coiffure」展覽。這其實是他的一個名為「Rezzak Beauty Institute」,探討「人類改造」(Trans-humanity)的藝術計劃三步曲的首個單元。香港部份的展覽就是以 「髮廊」作為主題,一種最簡單的「轉換」和「改造」方式。展館內會看到Franck Rezzak的27件幅畫作、雕塑及裝置藝術。

聽起來好像很抽象,不過今早天寒地凍 8O 起來看了這個展覽,發覺展品很多,畫作又色彩豐富,是「b仔」藝術廊近期「」有趣的一個展覽呀!

其實大家可能見過Franck的作品,因為08年agnes b藝術廊一個名為「Modern Young People」的展覽,便展出過他的一個叫「door no. 103」的裝置作品。

Franck told me DON’T forget to mention his website which is a very important part (or guildline) of his art project. Franck特別叫我要提一提他的網站,所以不能遺漏的!趁我還記得… :-)
