安娜·福克斯的两组《度假胜景》系列,拍摄于2009年和2011年,记录了英国博格诺里吉斯的巴特林度假村里的当代面孔,这个度假村是比利·巴特林(Billy Butlin)在1930年建造的英国著名度假营地之一,为英国的工薪家庭创造一个独特的环境,并让他们拥有了首个真正的假期。

美国桌球房,2011

此次展览中的两个系列,《度假胜景I》及《度假胜景II》,展现的是度假村发展为公共消费者提供休闲环境的新方式。针对巴特林目前的售票类型:节假日家庭票和只针对成人的周末优惠套餐(不含18岁以下人士),《度假胜景I》记录的是家庭度假的日常,而《度假胜景II》则是成人欢度周末的日常。

红色街机,2010

从早先的巴特林私家档案记录中可以发现,此“度假村”的原型被设定为“让家庭成员摆脱一切忧愁的地方”,人们在其中可以参加团体健身,享受休闲美妙的泳池时光,晚间娱乐有喜剧和表演,同时有人帮忙照料孩子,此外,还可以投入到巴特林永不停息的竞技游戏中。

如今的巴特林度假村则是完全不同的一番景象,由于当代社会重视消费,原本的体育和健身活动大部分消失,取而代之的是付费娱乐项目,比如舞台表演、给孩子讲睡前故事的巨型泰迪、街机、老虎机、保龄球馆、派对场所、美式游泳池,以及无数的餐厅和快餐店,还有酒吧、美发店,化妆店,玩具商店、录音棚,度假的人会愿意支付他们额外消费的所有项目。每个不同的娱乐区域之间环环相扣,它们就像电视演播室里的迷你舞台或场景,你可以轻松地从一个区域穿行到另一个区域,而在这个过程中也就很容易花掉更多的钱。

海边餐厅,2011

英国有广泛的饮酒文化,夜晚的市中心很疯狂。《度假胜景II》表现的是巴特林的成人派对,一种非比寻常的周末景象。这里的周末都有固定的主题,比如“重返60年代”,“90年代的重塑”以及“盛夏派对”,度假者们身着有趣的服装,男男女女们玩着易装游戏(这在英国很时髦),所有的人都穿戴成夏威夷度假的模样,或乔装打扮成明星模样。这组作品中有一部分被当作电影场景进行拍摄。

天使4,2009

安娜对英国人休闲活动的拍摄,超真实地展现了英国工薪阶层的民众日常生活并进一步深层挖掘国民趣味。这与1980年代马丁·帕尔(Martin Parr)在《最后的度假胜地》中对撒切尔执政时代及英国中产阶级的嘲讽不同。

安娜的这两组作品受Pallant House画廊委托,她用彩色大画幅摄影配合电影场景的灯光效果,探索纪实叙事的新途径,通过鲜艳的色彩,强调现实环境的戏剧性。对安娜来讲,摄影和文学、电影一样,是讲故事的手段。她的拍摄,正是在对日常生活的不断探索中,拓展故事的叙述方法,以抵达日常表象之下的核心。她的一系列自我探索的作品,都在反映纪实摄影中真相与虚构的关系。

安娜·福克斯通过将镜头对准自己生活中某个具体的社会状况,作品是对于摄影形式的检验,她自始至终都感受到了摄影媒介的不足之处,不断检验并推动了它在形式上的潜力。

RESORT 1 and 2

These two new bodies of work, made between 2009 and 2011, record the contemporary face of Butlin’s, Bognor Regis – one of the well known British holiday camps built by Billy Butlin in the 1930’s creating a unique environment for working class British families to have their first real holidays. The two series’, Resort 1 and 2, observe some of its most recent developments and consider the new ways in which the Butlin’s resort is providing a leisure environment for public consumption. Butlin’s today sells both family holidays and adult weekend breaks (where no under 18s are allowed). Resort 1 records the family breaks while Resort 2 looks at the adult weekends.

Butlin’s have their own archive documenting the resort which shows that the original holiday camp was a place where families could get away from it all; take part in group fitness activities; have the children looked after during the evenings; swim in the (then) fantastic leisure pool and be entertained by comedians and performers during the evening or compete in one of the endless Butlin’s competitions. Today’s Butlin’s holiday camp is quite a different affair; sports and fitness activities have largely disappeared. The contemporary emphasis is on consumption whether it is staged performances, giant teddy bears telling bedtime stories to children, arcades, slot machines, bowling alleys, parties, American pool halls, countless restaurants and snack bars, the pub, hairdresser, make up shop, toy shops, recording studio – holiday makers pay for all the extras they consume. Each different entertainment area overlaps the next, they are like mini stages or sets in a television studio you can slide from one to another easily spending more money as you go.

The UK has a massive drinking culture with wild nights out in many city centres often punctured by scenes of drunken violence and serious accidents. At the Butlin’s adult parties, shot for Resort 2, drinking was the main activity but the atmosphere was completely different to the regular Saturday night in a British town: it felt safer and more relaxed. Weekends were themed, Back to the 60’s, The 90’s Reloaded or Hot Summer Party for example and the holidaymakers dressed up in spectacular costumes with large numbers of the men dressed as women (a popular British thing) and whole groups dressed as Honolulu girls or as Elvis’s or as Amy Whinehouse’s. Resort 2 became a portrait project primarily because of the fabulous costumes.

The work is shot on large and medium format cameras with a team of assistants and a lighting director. Some are shot as if they were film sets and others are shot just as I am passing through groups of people and events.

In Resort 1 & 2, commissioned by Pallant House Gallery, Anna is working with large format colour photography and a lighting crew, she explores new approaches to documentary story-telling and with the vivacity of her colour palette this work emphasizes the theatricality of the reality environment.

ANNA FOX

Anna Fox (b. 1961, Alton, UK) is Professor of Photography at University for the Creative Arts, Farnham. She began working as a photographer in the early 1980s, emerging as one of the most exciting colour documentary photographers of the period. Fox was influenced by the emergence of a new British documentary tradition – the wave of new colourists, a group that included Paul Graham and Martin Parr. Fox’s fascinating study of the bizarre as well as the ordinariness of British life resulted in a combination of social observation with highly personal diary projects.
