《咔》攝影文化誌是一本為了展示和分析攝影及影像獨特的表達功能及文化,而出現的一本雜誌。有別於市面所見的的攝影雜誌,我們尋求相中趣味,以及展示一切攝影所能影響及達成的事。我們在社區及不同身份的人中,搜集出獨特的影像,例如不同flickr 用家上傳相片跟大眾分享、眼科醫生的視網膜影像等等。對其進行多角度的分析、解讀,並對本地攝影有較深入的研究,務求能進一步擴闊攝影的表現性、本質和意義,繼而能推動攝影作為文化創意教育。 攝影的表現手法多而廣,若果能將為散佈於各處不為人知的創意影像根據攝影歷史和理論作出統整,深入淺出,結果將普出意想不到的火花,亦延展出主流藝術攝影以外的更多可能性。

KLACK Photography & Culture Magazine is a local photography magazine, which aims at revealing a new and unique culture of interpreting photographs. We wish to gather and unscramble distinctive images and high quality works from different walks of life. We are looking for an interactive way on discussing and analyzing photography, so as to widen the horizons of our readers in understanding its nature. We believe that if we succeed in gathering creative images far and wide, we would be able to figure out other possibilities from the mainstream photography.
