(What to make of the man who crosses to the far side of the lens — into the very scenes he’s recording?)

(Is he shooting his way into history: a person deserving a document who just happened to make that document? Or do his self-portraits, like all of his photographs, bear testament to a simpler fact: I am here, I am here?)

(那是誰?站在相機背面的男人,為甚麼總會同時站在這些他正要記錄的場景之中?)

(一個當被記下的人,剛好成為了這些空間的紀錄者?他想要把自己拍進歷史嗎?或者說,他的肖像,如同他其他所有的照片一般,都在驗證一個純粹的事實:我在這裏我就在這?)
