About Artist

周慶輝Chou Ching-hui

生於1965年,畢業於世界新聞專科學校,退伍後進入媒體工作,之後並開啟了幾個窮年耗月的專題攝影計畫,包括:「停格的歲月—痲瘋村紀事」(現稱為「行過幽谷」)、「消失的群像—勞動者紀事」、「野想—黃羊川計劃」等。早期攝影作品以「報導攝影」風格為主,以紀實且帶有詩意的影像語言,傳達個人對於主題人物的觀點與想法。

「人的莊園」為個人首度以「編導式攝影」方式進行的創作主題,透過精緻細膩且色彩飽滿的影像,結合超現實的景境氛圍,開創個人獨特的攝影語境。周慶輝曾先後榮獲了「自立報系台灣新聞年度攝影獎」、「映像與時代—中華民國國際攝影藝術大展」的「報導類銀牌獎」、「台北攝影節報導類特別獎」、「金鼎獎」等榮譽獎項。同時,周慶輝也以攝影藝術家的身份多次受邀參加國際攝影大展,包括:「廣州國際攝影雙年展」、「香港攝影節 四度空間—兩岸四地當代攝影展」、「首屆長江國際影像雙年展」、「2014台北雙年展」、「陌生的亞洲—北京國際攝影雙年展」等。周慶輝希望自己成為一位用相機說故事的人,「我想讓影像如文字般,本身就能敘述故事」,每個看過圖片的人,如同聽他說完故事一般,自影像中得到豐富的感受。

Born in 1965 following graduation from Shih Hsin University, Chou devoted himself to both the efficiency-orientated news photography industry and to beginning several time-consuming specialists photography projects, including: Out of the Shadows, Vanishing Leagues: Images of Workers and Wild Aspirations: The Yellow Sheep River Project. His photographic works arise from social realities, and combine artistic representative techniques. Animal Farm was his first creative venture to make the switch from documentary photography to directed photography. Through delicately exquisite yet vibrantly colored images, he conjured a kind of hyper-real atmosphere, creating his own photographic language. Chou Ching-Hui has successively been awarded the Independence Post Group Annual Taiwan News Award, a silver medal in the Reportage category at the ROC International Photography Art Exhibition, the Taipei Photography Festival Reportage Photography Award Gold Medal among other honours, and has been invited to participate in international photography exhibitions many times. These include Sightings: Searching for the Truth 2009 Guangzhou Photo Biennial Exhibition, Four Dimensions Contemporary Photography from Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan & Macau, The First Yangtze International Photography & Video Biennale, the 2014 Taipei Biennale and Unfamiliar AsiaThe Second Beijing Photo Biennale. Chou Ching-Hui wishes to use his camera to tell stories. “I want to make images that, just like words, relate stories by their very nature.” He hopes that everyone who sees his pictures gains a rich feeling from the images, just as if they had heard him tell a story.
