  • 1957年,原国家计委正式批准在文成县篁庄兴建百丈漈水电站。1958年,一场声势浩大的建设大会战就此拉开序幕。6700余名建设者集结在海拔600米的高山上筑坝修库。他们披荆斩棘、开山凿石,到1960年百丈漈电厂第一台机组投产,仅用2个月时间就创造了水电建设史上的奇迹,并成为全国当时最高的水头电站。
      从期盼到建设,从辉煌到转型,为不致这转瞬即逝之忧,我希望能将这段历史记忆记录,通过图像让观者在疏远和陌生的年代与建设者们对话,探寻他们的故事、体会他们的情感。2020年正值百电甲子之时,我花了近一年多的时间,在通过历史档案的查阅和收集整理梳理50年代建设时期大量老照片的基础上,深入对百丈漈电厂进行调查研究、现场访谈和实地拍摄。用镜头记录高山峡谷中百丈漈电厂所处流域的“云从叠嶂起,瀑布水潺潺”,用图像还原出当年建设时艰苦却依然赤热的场面,用光影定格着建设者及管理者于孤灯间高挂青天之心…
      In 1957, the former State Planning Commission officially approved the construction of baizhanghe hydropower station in Huangzhuang, Wencheng County. In 1958, a massive construction conference war kicked off. More than 6700 builders gathered on the high mountains with an altitude of 600 meters to build dams and reservoirs. By 1960, the first unit of baizhangzhe power plant was put into operation. It took only 22 months to create a miracle in the history of hydropower construction and became the highest water head power station in the country at that time.
      From expectation to construction, from brilliance to transformation, in order not to cause this fleeting worry, I hope to record this historical memory, and let the viewer talk with the builders in an alienated and unfamiliar era through images, so as to explore their stories and experience their emotions. 2020 is the year of Baizhang Jiazi. I spent more than a year in-depth investigation, on-site interview and on-site shooting of Baizhang power plant on the basis of consulting and collecting historical archives and combing a large number of old photos during the construction period in the 1950s. Use the camera to record the "clouds rise from the overlapping peaks, waterfalls and water gurgling" in the watershed where baizhanghe power plant is located in the high mountain canyon. Use the image to restore the hard but still red hot scene during the construction in that year, and use the light and shadow to frame the builders and managers to hang the heart of the blue sky in the lonely lamp
