親情 1993-2014
「Julie和家人的故事十分複雜,這是一個由貧窮、愛滋病、毒品、多個家庭、關係、出生、死亡和重聚交織而成的故事。透過聚焦在一名女子的努力掙扎,我希望能深入檢視與弱勢和愛滋病有關的社會問題,同時也想為Julie的孩子們留下母親人生故事的記錄。」──Darcy Padilla

Family Love 1993-2014
"The story of Julie Baird and her family is a complex one: a story of poverty, AIDS, drugs, multiple homes, relationships, births, deaths and reunion. By focusing on one woman's struggle, I hoped to provide an in-depth look at social issues surrounding disadvantage and HIV, but I also wanted to create a record for Julie's children of their mother's story."──Darcy Padilla

《副作用》
Kacper Kowalski是一名飛行員兼攝影師。《副作用》是一項紀錄人類與自然之間複雜關係的攝影專題。照片都是從一百五十多公尺空中的飛行傘或旋翼飛機上拍攝,地點主要在攝影師居住的波蘭城市Gdynia附近。透過這些照片,Kowalski叩問了幾個讓他深感興趣的問題:人類的「自然環境」是什麼?是未經任何開發的處女地?或者是已經依人類需求而改變過的地貌?

Kowalski認為這些照片對於「文明如何逐漸成形」提供了一個圖像化,有時甚至抽象化的寫真。對他而言,觀看這些照片時產生的反應、反思和想法遠比照片本身的內容重要。他希望這項專題能成為一個起點,讓人們開始討論在人類與自然的關係中什麼是好與壞,什麼是必要與非必要。

攝影機在拍攝過程中從未與遙控設備連結,Kowalski也從不使用無人飛行器拍攝。他想要自己在空中手持照相機拍攝。他總是獨自飛行,這代表他無需向任何人解釋,或仰賴他人的空間想像,而能夠準確飛行。

與其說這是紮實的一組照片,《副作用》其實更像是一種透過視覺素材說故事的方法。這個專題目前仍持續進行,也會不斷修改。

「這有點像是觀眾和我一起飛行的感覺,就像我在駕駛飛機的時候也完全不知道他們在看什麼。對形式的欣賞比了解內容來的重要。」── Kacper Kowalski

Side Effects
Kacper Kowalski is a pilot and a photographer. Side Effects is a documentary project about the complex relationship between humans and nature. The photos were shot either from a paraglider or a gyroplane, some 150 meters above the ground, mainly in the area around Gdynia, in Poland, where Kowalski lives. In this work, Kowalski explores answers to questions that deeply interest him: What is the natural environment for humans? Is it an untouched, virgin landscape? Or is it a landscape that has changed, adapted to human needs?

Kowalski sees his work as offering a graphic and sometimes abstract portrait of how civilization came into being. For Kowalski, the content of the photo is less important than the reactions, reflections, and ideas that arise when looking at it. He would like the project to be a starting point for discussion about what is good or bad, necessary or optional, in the relationship between humans and nature.

The camera is never connected to a remote control, and Kowalski never uses a drone. He wants to be up there, camera in hand. And he flies alone. That means he doesn't have to explain anything, or rely on another person's spatial imagination. It means he can fly precisely.

Side Effects is more a method of visual storytelling than a concrete set of pictures. It is an ongoing project that will continue to be modified.

"It is a little as if the viewer is flying together with me, and—just like me during the flight—has no information about what they are looking at. An admiration of form comes before any understanding of content."── Kacper Kowalski
