回歸大自然:馬克.普羅冉穿越蒙古的攝影之旅

這個攝影故事將帶我們回到六千萬年前。歡迎與瑞士攝影師、詩人、哲學家及冒險家馬克.普羅冉(Marc Progin)一同踏上單車,翻山越嶺來來到屬於恐龍的世界。歷時三年多才完成的旅程,將帶我們時光倒流,回到那個由大自然統治,而且充滿光芒的世界。那個人類類遵守大自然法則的空間。

跟隨這條廣闊無邊的路路線,我們將回到世界的起源與恐龍相遇,穿越彷如月球般的景觀、化石森林林、沙丘和蒙古的沙漠。

除了攝影展和新書發布會之外,藝術家還將會以迷人的幻燈片和音樂去舉行分享講座,及將一併展出他冒險旅程中所用到的工具和地圖。

關於馬克.普羅冉(Marc Progin)

Time has no hold on this man or toward a singular career. Long distance runner and cyclist accustomed to the harshness of the Mongol Steppes that he covers in all directions. Marc Progin is 75. Slender, the muscle dry, straight like a post, he has the physical look of the marathoner and of the ascetic, “I feel good in my head because I feel good in my body.”

The constant search for wide horizons is the red thread of his rich life. Born in a working-class suburb of Neuchâtel, Switzerland in 1945, Marc Progin, a former watchmaker, settled in Hong Kong in the 1970s, becoming a pioneer in the conquest of Asian markets. At the turn of the millennium, the call of the unknown guided him in a new life as a traveller-poet.

Endurance leads him to a more fundamental, inner and cultural quest. The exploration of Mongolia, the original nature where the nomads live differently, without possessions, gives meaning to his life. He travels the deserts with minimal logistics. He explores its history and its paleontological treasures. At this cradle of dinosaurs, he borrows what becomes his nickname: ‘velociraptor,’ named after a species of which he found fossilised remains. Lover of words, erudite, the traveller fills page after page of notebooks with illuminated poetry. His ‘Alexandrine’ verses celebrate the beauty of Mongolian landscapes. They also tell of the spiritual quest of a man tired by the superficiality and illusions imposed by business, consumption and ‘connected’ society. Marc Progin photographs to convey what he sees and feels. In the bareness and the effort, in contact with emptiness and immensity, he clings to what he is, a being reduced to its vital needs: light, a little water and food.

Progin, the photographer, has had solo exhibitions in Hong Kong Foreign Correspondent’s Club and Latitude 22n as well as shown work with Hong Kong Heritage Project and Children of Mekong. He gathers a crown whenever he gives lectures, previously he has been invited to talk at the Royal Geographical Society [HK], CH-Lausanne University [Switzerland], CH-Neuchâtel Academy [Switzerland], American Hong Kong Society, Swiss Business Council Hong Kong, and French International School to name but a few. When he is not behind the camera shooting both for his own artwork or as a Press Photographer, he is often on the other side being interviewed numerous times by the RTHK, TVB, and for Radio.
