A Light on the People of Western Sahara

西撒哈拉之光

【社会新闻】A <wbr>Light <wbr>on <wbr>the <wbr>People <wbr>of <wbr>Western <wbr>Sahara <wbr> <wbr>西撒哈拉之光

 

By KERRI MACDONALD

When the Irish-born photographer Andrew McConnell saw some images from his project “The Last Colony” displayed side by side for the first time earlier this week, even he was surprised by the strength in numbers.

这个星期早些时候,当爱尔兰裔摄影师安德鲁·麦康奈尔看到一些他《最后的殖民地》专题中的图片,第一次被一张张展出的时候,连他自己都为展出的数量之多而感到惊讶。

 

While the individual images — stark, harshly lit portraits of the Sahrawi people from Western Sahara — are stunning in themselves, collectively, their impact grows. 

当这些独立的影像完全地、朴实地反映出西撒哈里的萨拉威人的魅力无限的肖像时,这些图像的影响力也提高了。

“It wasn’t enough just to photograph their daily life,” Mr. McConnell explained on Tuesday evening at the exhibition’s opening at the Half King Gallery in Manhattan. “It had to be more than that.”

“仅仅拍摄他们的日常生活是不够的,”周二夜,曼哈顿,在曼哈顿半王画廊举行的画展开幕式上,麦康诺先生这样说道,“拍摄的内容必须比这些更多”。

 

The Sahrawi people have for years been at the center of a political struggle between Morocco and a Sahrawi rebel group, the Polisario Front, which fought a battle for independence up until a 1991 cease-fire. Many of the Sahrawi people fled to Algeria to live in Polisaro Front-run refugee camps.

萨拉威人长年生活在摩洛哥和撒哈威叛军组织政治斗争的中心。在1991年停火协议签订前,波利萨里奥独立阵线一直带领萨拉威人为独立而战。而在此期间,许多萨拉威人逃亡至阿尔及利亚,并住在波利萨里奥独立阵线提供的难民营里。

 

Mr. McConnell’s story, which includes 50 images, won a World Press Photo award this year but has yet to be exhibited outside Spain.Mr. McConnell, who is represented by Panos Pictures, worked for three years as a press photographer in Northern Ireland before traveling through Australia, Asia and Africa, where he is based. /He spent four months photographing and interviewing the Sahrawis in refugee camps and in the Polisario-controlled Western Sahara.

麦康诺包含了50张图片的故事为他赢得了今年的世界新闻摄影的大奖,但(遗憾的是)至今没能走出西班牙展出。在游历澳大利亚、亚洲、非洲之前,以帕诺人照片为代表作的安德鲁·麦康奈尔,曾在他的家乡北爱尔兰,做了三年的摄影记者。他花了四个月的时间用于拍摄和采访难民营中以及波利萨里奥阵线控制下的西撒哈拉里的萨拉威人。

 

Mr. McConnell received a grant from the Spanish organization Doctors of the World early in 2009, and visited the former Spanish colony knowing a bit of history but little else. Seeking to move beyond normal reportage, he had a simple idea: highlight — literally — a group of people who have experienced “one long night.”

早在2009年年初,麦康奈尔就受到了来自西班牙组织——“世界医生的拨款,他来到了前西班牙殖民地,亦了解到了一些历史,但仅此而已。为了超越一般性报道,他提出了一个简单的理念:从字面意义上理解,“萨拉威人,就是一个经历漫长黑夜的群体”。

 

“At times,” he admitted, “it did seem too simple. But as the images started to pile up, I became more confident.”

麦康诺承认,有时候这个理念看上去的确太简单了。但随着拍摄影像的积累,我也越来越有信心。
