小编说

  昂山素季,缅甸非暴力提倡民主的政治家。经过多年的生活和出国留学,她于1988年回到缅甸,却发现示威者振臂反对独裁者吴奈温的残暴统治和对人民肆意的屠杀。她出言反对他,为实现民主和人权发起非暴力运动。1989年,缅甸政府对昂山素季实行软禁;1991年,她的不断努力为她赢得了诺贝尔和平奖; 2010年11月她重获自由。

  普拉登,一名当代摄影师,他为许多政界政要,首脑和世界名流拍摄过照片。2010年12月,他前往缅甸为昂山素季女士拍摄了一组照片。今天王老师将带同学们一起跟随普拉登体验这段被他称之为“美梦和梦靥同时交织在一起的疯狂旅途”,准备好了吗?




视频内容

  You know, I am used to the media, I know what works, I know what sells, I’ve been doing covers for 20 years ( on Dec. 8 2010, portrait photographer Platon traveled to Burma to photograph dissident Aung San Suu kyi ). And I am not a photo journalist, you know, I am a portrait photographer. I know how to create a visual logo, that were resonated with people.

  I’ve never experienced, I’ve never been through this kind crazy trip. It was like a beautiful dream, ( Nearly all foreign journalists are barred from working in Burma. ) or a living nightmare are mixed up at the same time. As soon as we arrived at the hotel, and I got a call from the front desk, and they said” Mr Platon, miss H is here to see you.” “Miss H, it’s gonna be Hannah, the writer.”

  I am used to greeting people “Hi, how are you doing.” This is the world operates. As she walked in, tension walked in with her. she said” we have to go to the NLD offices- Aung San Suu Kyi offices to negotiate the portrait setting.

  We got our driver to drop us off at a hotel down the road from the NLD offices. We stopped at a shop to buy a hat to cover our faces, and Miss H said “you must never allow anybody to see or photograph your face, because once they’ve done that, they will trace you.”

  We marched into the offices, we were ushered up stairs, and we sat opposite. Sort of middle-aged man, and he was the gatekeeper. He looked at the schedule, and he was jammed pack, kept saying “you have no appointment, you have no appointment.” So i grabbed this guy’s hands, both of them, across his desk and looked into his eyes. And I said “ look man, look, you got to help me, coz, I can’t do this on my own. And we’ve come a long way for this. And I know she’s busy and I know we have no appointment, but you can’t make an appointment for this kind of thing. You just got to help me, man.” So he looked through his pages again, and he said “ maybe tomorrow you will be lucky, maybe.”

  So we left, hats on, sunglasses on, marching down the street, trying to round over with Miss H’s driver. And then she got a call on her mobile and then she goes” what? are you sure? on my god! on my god! okay, I’ll talk to you later.” She hanged up and she said:“don’t look up, keep your heads down. We are being followed, they are on to us.”

  So the chase begins. There was a young taxi driver just waiting there. We jumped into the car and said:“ Drive, drive man, drive, drive, drive like hell.” As this young driver was driving like this, he put his hand on the glove compartment, then pulled a picture that was laminated of Aung San Suu Kyi, and he said “mother, mother, he said I’ll help you.”

  All the police jumped into their cars, and started following us. This car chase went on for like 2, 3 hours. We were driving like 90 miles an hour, down highways, driving through markets, knocking over stores, we were doing u turns, and car was swinging from side-to-side, kind, across five lanes of traffic, eventually we lost them. The next morning we woke and all headed straight for the NLD offices.

  She walks in, she is beautiful, she’s elegant. she said:“I am so sorry, I’ve kept you waiting, I am so sorry it is so hot in here.” It was about 95 degrees in this room. There is a point where i said to her :“I need your help now and you gonna have to open up to me, in a way, that you’ve never opened up to anyone before.” and I said :”just let it all go and show me spirit. Because that’s why i am really come to photograph.” and something happened.

  It was just beautiful. I felt it, my assistant felt it, Hannah felt it, and so did mother. We rapped the shoot, we packed our gear and it was a weird moment of great satisfaction and accomplishment that we got the shot, but it was a incredibly moment of anxiety that even we’ve come this far, we could still be detained and who knows what could happen. We have a decoiled film, packed in every single bag. So that if we were arrested or detained or as miss H said :“ compromised, they would take that first, hopefully.” We headed straight for the airport. I was going through security with films stashed in my socks, man. It was like our sweat in, I was terrified I’ll be arrested even at the point of security. The door closed the plane, the plane took off and we made it.

  I thought as we got on the flight, this is an image for freedom, this is an image for humanity, this is someone who is changing the world, and made a huge sacrifice to do it. And she has something, she has a spirit, she has a quality that can inspire people to be better, to make a difference.

  It is something more than a personal power, on photographing something, that is changing history, for the better.


中文翻译

  我从事新闻20年了,经常和媒体打交道, 我懂它的运作方式,我了解媒体向大众出售卖什么。( 201012月, 肖像摄影师 Platon 前往缅甸为缅甸国内民主联盟领导人,政治上持不同见的昂山素季女士拍摄一组照片)

  你知道, 我是一名肖像摄影师,而不是一个普通的摄影记者。 我知道如何去创造一个能够在精神上和公众引起共鸣的视图案。

  在我的一生中,我从未经历过如此疯狂的旅途, 它就像一场美梦和梦靥同时交织在一起。( 当时的缅甸拒绝国外媒体记者采访报道)

  我们刚刚抵达入住的酒店的时候, 我就接到了一个来自前台的电话。 他们说“ Platon先生, H女士要来见你“。 我当时脑子里想 “ H女士, 那一定是那个女作家 Hannah”。

  我一直是一种非常寒暄的方式和人打招呼,比如“ 你好, 最近过的怎么样”,其实全世界也是如此。

  当她走进来的时候, 紧张的气氛也随之而来。 她说“ 我们不得不去NLD( National League for Democracy 国家民主联盟) 昂山素季女士的办公室去协商拍摄事宜。

  我们让司机把我们放在前往NLD办公室路上的一家宾馆。 我们停在一家商店门口去买帽子,以便遮挡住我们脸。 这个时候H女士说:“ 你们一定不能让任何人看到或者拍到你们的脸,一旦发生了, 他们会跟踪你们, 也可能引来杀身之祸”

  我们一行人继续往昂山素季女士的办公室走。 我们被引领上楼, 然后面对面坐在一起。 这时候一个类似中年男子的门卫, 紧张的翻看着日程表,一直说:“你们不能进去, 你们没有预约,你们没有预约”。 所以,这个时候,我紧紧的握住的他的双手, 然后看着他的眼睛,对他说:“ 听着,你一定要帮帮我, 因为,我自己没办法办到这一切。 并且为了给昂山素季女士拍摄这件事情,我们已经付出了太多了。我知道她很忙,而且我们也没有预约,但是你不能因为没有预约就让这所有的一切付之东流, 你一定要帮帮我”。 然后他又仔细看了看日程表说:“ 或许明天是你们的幸运日,我只是说可能。”

  我们带上墨镜和帽子离开了, 我们一行人走在街道上,去和H 小姐的司机回会和。 这时候H小姐接到一个电话。“什么? 你确定么? 天啊!好啊,我一会打给你。” 她挂了电话说:“ 我们被人盯上了,别抬头。“

  这个时候一场追逐游戏开始了。

  当时有个年轻的出租车司机正在等我们,我们跳进车里,大声喊:“快开车,快开车,赶紧玩命开。” 那个年轻的司机把车开的飞快,同时从储物箱里拿出一张昂山素季的照片。“妈妈,我会尽我所能的去帮助你.”

  几乎所有当地的警察都在开车追捕我们,并持续了两三个小时,当时我们的车速也达到了每小时90英里。 我们飞奔在高速公路上,开车飞速穿过集市,撞翻商铺,做U形弯,车身从一侧甩到另一侧,然后又大概穿过了五个红绿灯,最终我们甩掉了他们。

  第二天早上,我们醒来之后做的第一件事就是直奔国家民主联盟的办公室。

  昂山素季女士走了进来,她非常的美丽、优雅。 一进门她就连忙说:“非常抱歉,这里太热了,我让你们久等了。”(当时房间里的温度大概有华氏95度,摄氏35度)

  我对她强调了一点:“我需要你的帮助,你必须用一种你对别人从来没有过的方式,向我敞开心扉。这一刻,你需要把一切都抛在脑后,你灵魂深处最纯粹的一面展示给我。” 因为只有那才是我此行的目的。 奇迹也随之而来, 那种纯粹的美,我感受到了,我的助手感受到了,Hannah感受到了,同样那种美,昂山素季女士本人也感受到了。

  结束了拍摄,我们整理好器材,当时心里有一种难以言表的满足感和成就感,但是同时,自己的心里也充满了忧虑,因为即便我们走了现在,我们依然有可能前功尽弃,因为没人知道接下来会发生什么。

  我们在每个背包里都放了一个开卷的胶片,这样如果我们被捕、拘留,或者像H小姐说的那样“妥协”的话,希望他们能先没收开卷的胶片。

  然后我们直接奔向了机场,在过安检的时候,我把底片藏在脚底的袜子上,大家当时似乎都出了一身冷汗,当时我也很害怕,怕在过安检的时候被逮捕。 有惊无险的,我们通过了安检,飞机起飞了。我们做到了。

  当我登上飞机的时候,我在想,这是一幅可以代表自由、人性的画面, 她是一个可以改变世界并可以为之做献出一切的人。 她具有一种精神,一种品质,可以激励人们去创造不同。 而正是这种远超于我们个人力量存在的精神,正在改变这个世界,改变历史。
