Annie Leibovitz: 鏡頭下的人生

我想一直拍照,一直到我死的那一天。我隨時都在看,往每一個方向看時,我時時都在構圖,我的私生活照片和工作照片都是這些生活的一部分 — 我沒有兩種生活,只有一種生活… (I WANT TO BE PHOTOGRAPHING THE DAY I DIE. I’M LOOKING ALL THE TIME. IN EVERY DIRECTION I LOOK, I’M FRAMING. AND MY PERSONAL PICTURES AND THE ASSIGNMENT WORK ARE ALL PART OF IT — I DON’T HAVE TWO LIVES, THIS IS ONE LIFE…..) by Annie Leibovitz.

今天走出電影院後,感覺非常懊悔,懊悔為什麼沒有早一點看。雖然見過 Annie Leibovitz 許多攝影作品,但今天才真正開始了解她、以及每一張經典作品背後的故事。紀錄片很難被引述,我第一次把紀錄片的字幕從頭翻到尾只為了找印象深刻的 quotes:

Susan Leibovitz 談因為軍人父親而不斷搬家移動、和母親喜歡替家人紀錄生活,對 Annie 攝影的影響 [pullquote] WHEN YOU’RE RAISED IN A CAR, IT WAS EASY TO BECOME AN ARTIST BECAUSE WE SAW THE WORLD THROUGH A READY-MADE PICTURE FRAME, WHICH WAS THE FRAME OF THE CAR WINDOW. THAT WAS HOW YOU SAW THE WORLD.

Susan Leibovitz: MY MOTHER WAS PROLIFIC IN COMPILING DOCUMENTATION OF OUR FAMILY.

Annie: WE WERE JUST SO USED TO IT AND WE WERE USED TO IT AT ALL DIFFERENT TIMES. WE JUST THOUGHT THAT THE CAMERA WAS ANOTHER MEMBER OF THE FAMILY. [/pullquote]

Annie 和著名舞蹈家 Baryshnikov 的對話 [pullquote] THE THING ABOUT A PHOTOGRAPH IS THAT YOU ARE DOING A HEIGHTENED MOMENT OR A MOMENT. THIS IS TRUTH, RIGHT HERE, US (Annie & Baryshnikov.) THIS  (pointing to the camera) IS NOT TRUTH. THIS IS LIKE — THIS IS KIND OF A LITTLE NOTE, A LITTLE LETTER. [/pullquote]

Annie 談她對舞蹈的喜愛以及想用攝影紀錄舞蹈的企圖

[pullquote] Annie: I BEGAN TO SORT OF UNDERSTAND THAT DANCE COULDN’T BE PHOTOGRAPHED. HOW WONDERFUL THAT IT COULDN’T BE PHOTOGRAPHED. THERE WAS SOMETHING BEAUTIFULABOUT COMING TO THAT PLACE AND REALIZING THAT YOU WERE JUST KIND OF DOING A PORTRAIT OF A MOMENT. IT WAS THIS ART THAT LIVED IN THE AIR.

I LEARNED VERY EARLY ON THAT SOMETHING THAT WOULDN’T SEEM LIKE IT WAS ANYTHING WOULD BE SOMETHING. AND I ENJOYED THAT ASPECT OF IT SO MUCH. I NEVER LIKED TO PRESUME SOMETHING STORY OR A PERSON UNTIL I GOT THERE. [/pullquote]

Annie 談移動、旅行和攝影 [pullquote] Annie: I REALLY DO LOVE WORKING FOR THE MAGAZINE. I GET TO TRAVEL. MOBILITY IS, LIKE, MY GOAL. AS LONG AS I CAN MOVE, AS LONG AS I CAN KEEP MOVING, I’M HAPPY. [/pullquote]

應該是 Jann Wenner (Rolling Stone 共同創辦人) 談 Annie [pullquote] SHE MADE PORTRAITS OF PEOPLE WHICH SEEMED TO DERIVE FROM A VERY CAREFULLY CONSIDERED IDEA. A GRAPHIC CONCEPT, PERHAPS A CONCEPT THAT HAS A DEGREE OF HUMOR, IRONY BUILT INTO IT. [/pullquote]

Annie 談與 Yoko Ono 和 John Lennon 合作的經驗

[pullquote]

Annie: WHEN YOU’RE WORKING WITH SOMEONE WHO’S A VERY CREATIVE ARTIST, YOU KNOW WHEN IT’S GOOD, YOU JUST KNOW WHEN IT’S GOOD. EVERYTHING IS A PROCESS, AND WHAT WAS INTERESTING WAS THAT SHE SAID SHE’D TAKE HER TOP OFF, AND SHE DIDN’T WANT TO TAKE HER BOTTOM OFF, AND I SAID, “OH, LEAVE EVERYTHING ON,” YOU KNOW, NOT REALLY PRECONCEIVING, SEEING THE PICTURE, OR ANYTHING. AND THEN, YOU KNOW, HE CURLED UP NEXT TO HER AND IT WAS VERY, VERY STRONG.

Yoko Ono: JOHN MADE A STATEMENT — “I’M NOT AFRAID TO DO THIS. I’M NOT AFRAID TO SHOW MY VULNERABILITY.” BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, HE COULD HAVE SAID NO. THAT’S NOT JOHN’S CREATIVE EFFORT, IT WAS ANNIE’S CREATIVE EFFORT, BUT JOHN COULD HAVE SAID, “NO, I’M NOT DOING THAT,” YOU KNOW, AND HE WAS RIGHT ON THERE WITH HER. HE SAID, “OKAY, LET’S DO THAT,” AND HE DID NOT MIND SHOWING HIMSELF NAKED HOLDING ON TO HIS WOMAN…. AND WE DIDN’T KNOW THAT… A VERY HEAVY FATE WAS WAITING FOR US, YOU KNOW, ONLY FOUR OR FIVE HOURS LATER. [/pullquote]

Whoopi Goldberg 談與 Annie 的合作 [pullquote] … AND THEN SHE TURNED UP, AND IT WAS LIKE, “HI!” AND SHE SAID, “I’M GOING TO PUT YOU IN A TUB OF MILK. “I WANT TO SHOW THAT YOU ARE EMERGING FROM WHAT WAS, WHICH WAS ALL WHITE.” AND I THOUGHT, “HONEY, WHATEVER YOU WANT, WHATEVER YOU WANT.” CATS FOLLOWED ME FOR WEEKS AFTERWARDS.

Annie 談 Susan Sontag [pullquote] SHE BROUGHT A SENSE OF POETRY TO HER LOSS. SUSAN CAME, SHE WAS HERE, AND SHE LEFT. AND I WANT MORE TIME — AND I’M LEFT WITH MY WORK. MY WORK TURNS OUT TO BE THE GREATEST RELATIONSHIP OF MY LIFE.
