  • 作为人类,我们通过给自然赋予意义,产生非自然的产品来控制我们的世界。摄影解决了世界被强加意义的误解。相机是非自然的器械,而摄影却是完满的,也正是这种完满让摄影具有自然的特质。富山广人认为,摄影其实是以自然抵抗非自然,是探索如何通过摄影本身来控制自然的过程。
      “也许是因为在日本最北部的北海道出生、在那里长大,对于人类制造出的东西,我一向十分敏感。随着年龄的增长,这种敏感愈发强烈。由人类制造出来的东西是‘非自然的’,在这些事物上,人们的感受会受到限制,它们的意义也被自私地曲解。”
      As humans, we control our world by giving meaning to nature and producing unnatural products. Photography addresses the misconception that the world is subject to the imposition of meaning. While the camera is an unnatural apparatus, photography is perfection, and it is this perfection that gives photography its natural qualities. According to Hiroto Toyama, photography is in fact the resistance of the natural to the unnatural, an exploration of how nature can be controlled through photography itself.
      "Perhaps because I was born and raised in Hokkaido, the northernmost part of Japan, I have always been very sensitive to things made by humans. As I grew older, this sensitivity grew stronger. Things made by humans are 'unnatural', in which people's feelings are limited and their meaning is selfishly misinterpreted."
