「田裕華 杭大鵬 張良一的軍旅映象 」攝影作品,由三位共同作者在部隊服役時,分別從外島馬祖、成功嶺新兵訓練中心和陸軍航空特戰等不同單位,用第一人稱述說著台灣男子服兵役的集體記憶。攝影作品強調身為一個人,即使身分為軍人,還是有血有肉的活生生個體,仍保有其獨特性,這與制式的國軍影像強調集體、去個人化、去情感,有著非常不一樣的詮釋,同時也對阿兵哥的形象進行解構以及再重現。

 


台灣在八十年代後期,解除戒嚴開放黨禁,社會開始走向民主自由。但軍隊裡還是相對保守。九十年代初,兩岸開始會談接觸,建立了兩會的交流管道。到了九十年代中,台灣第一次總統大選,中共軍方試射飛彈與大規模軍演,經歷了一段劍拔弩張的緊張局勢。這批拍攝於九十年代初到九十年代中的照片,記錄著那段兩岸大變局下,保家衛國台灣阿兵哥們的真實生活與青春歲月容顏.......

The Soldiers

“The Soldiers” is a collection of photographic works by Tien Yu-hua, Hang Dah-­parng, and Chang ­Liang-i, who belonged to different units during their military service, with Tien stationed on the offshore island of ­Matsu, Hang at the Cheng­gong­ling recruit training center, and ­Chang in the Army Aviation and Special Forces Command. The three photographers use the first person to relate young Taiwanese men’s collective memories of military service, their works emphasizing how every person, even when a soldier, is still a flesh-and-blood individual who retains his distinctive­ness. This interpretation is far removed from stock military imagery that emphasizes the collective and minimizes individuality and emotion. At the same time, the works undertake a deconstruction and reconstruction of the image of soldiers.

 


In the late 1980s, martial law and the ban on new politi­cal parties were lifted in Taiwan, ushering in demo­cracy and freedom in society at large. But the military still remained quite conservative. In the early 1990s, contacts and discussions began between the two sides across the Taiwan Strait, and mainland China and Taiwan set up the Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Straits and the Straits Exchange Foundation, respectively, as channels for communication. In the mid-1990s, during Taiwan’s first direct presidential elections, the Chinese military conducted missile test launches and large-scale military exercises near Taiwan, and there was a period of tense confrontation. These photographs, taken from the early to mid-1990s, are an authentic record of the lives and faces of the youthful Taiwanese soldiers who stood ready to defend their country and loved ones during this period of turbulence in cross-strait relations.
