你发现了吗?藏在上海街头的一只鸭子。

Did you see? That duck hidden in Shanghai.

‘They walk — an elementary form of this experience of the city; they are walkers, Wandersmänner, whose bodies follow the thicks and thins of an urban "text" they write without being able to read it.’

—— Michel de Certeau

I have taken a screenshot of a random area on the map of Shanghai and doodled a duck on it as a special travel route. Following the route I drew, I brought the camera with me and went for the walk, carefully searching for any details that I would not normally notice. And every time when I took the picture, I recorded down the coordinates of that specific shooting place and marked a dot on the route. I want to share the interesting views and the anecdotes happened during my walk on the “duck route” ----this is how this photo zine had come up.


某天盯着手机导航发呆不知道上哪儿遛弯儿时,突然灵光一闪,决定在上海地图上随机选取一片区域截图,再在上面涂鸦一只鸭子,作为一条特殊的散步和拍摄路线。

我就这样根据我即兴画出来的路线,大步踏在陌生的街上,通过镜头闯进周围人的故事里,仔细寻找平时不会注意到的小细节:一片光、一段对话、一个行为规律,组构起我的视角。而每拍下一张照片时,我都会及时记录当下的坐标点(经纬度),点在鸭子地图上作为记号。  

想分享散步时发生的趣闻轶事,想把藏在上海街头中的这只可爱鸭子路线告诉更多人,于是就产生了这本小小的地图式影集。
