《雙喜》是一盒煙 一本集結不知名素人照片的攝影書,這本書關注香煙在中國婚宴上扮演的令人意想不到的角色。「敬煙」是中國婚宴上的一個約定俗成的傳統規矩,新娘子要給每一位到場的男士點煙,以示感謝。同時,新人會被要求完成一些有點俗趣卻也充滿想像力的「抽煙」遊戲。這本香煙盒大的可愛小書,即是向這個愛與死亡完美結合的傳統致敬……。

這本書裡所有的照片都來自一個名為「北京銀礦」的計畫——由長住北京的法國藝術家蘇文(Thomas Sauvin)持續從北京垃圾回收站逐年蒐集回來的廢棄底片組成的影像資料庫,所整理的底片已經多達50萬張,並試圖透過這些無名、廢棄的素人影像,發掘當代中國經歷的社會變化。

關於蘇文的「北京銀礦」影像計畫,可以在 [VOP#11 : 影像檔案] 這期雜誌裡,讀到他的專訪。

Until Death Do Us Part focuses on the unexpected role cigarettes play in Chinese weddings. It is customary for the bride to light a cigarette for each and every man invited to the wedding as a gesture of appreciation. The bride and the groom are then asked to play some cigarette-smoking games of an unprecedented ingenuousness. This publication pays homage to a tradition in which love and death walk hand in hand.

All the photos in this book are from the Beijing Silvermine project, an archive of half a million negatives salvaged over the years from recycling stations in Beijing by China-based French artist Thomas Sauvin. Through these nameless and discarded portraits, he hopes to trace the social changes in modern China.
