Catalogue Note

"It is inevitably to go through various stages of seeing regardless of meditation or photographic creation - seeing the mountain and the sea as is; understanding them as representations; gaining insights into them. Themed on a shabby old staircase, this photo integrated the calligraphed words 'Shan Shui' deviated from the traditional concept of calligraphy, resulting in an artwork which blurs the line of painting. Just as the everchanging universe, one cannot be obdurate on the aesthetic standards." - Venerable Chang Lin


Venerable Chang Lin, formerly known as Alain Yip, was a reputable professional photographer in Hong Kong who graduated from the School of Design, Hong Kong Polytechnic (now Hong Kong Polytechnic University). With over 50 years of experience in photography, he is the Founder and Honorary Member of the Hong Kong Institute of Professional Photographers. His works have been widely published in various media and shown in exhibitions. He also published free photography publications and collected works on meditation to share his experience with others.


In 2009, he decided to give up all his fame and fortune and received tonsure ceremony at Master Guo Ru's temple in Taiwan. Ven. Chang Lin now leads meditation retreats combining the art of life, helping others to live an unrestrained life.

「不管是攝影創作還是禪修體驗,都會經歷『見山是山,見水是水;見山非山,見水非水;見山還是山,見水還是水』的不同階段。一張以舊階梯殘跡為題材的照片,加上不隨書法傳統概念而繪寫的大字,融合而成的作品似畫非畫,如同宇宙萬物總在無常變化。究竟何謂美的標準?根本無從執著。」── 常霖法師
