北京市民持续一年在同一地点拍照

在首都北京,有这样一位普通市民,他持续365天拍摄北京大气状况,只为让空气质量“一目了然”。他叫邹毅,每天早晨以同一地点作为背景,拍照记录北京的大气情况, 他将个人微博和朋友圈作为“观象台”发布大气状况,并将一系列照片命名为《一目了然 天天晨报》。 每天发布大气图片 近日,邹毅整理了自2013年1月27日以来拍摄的每日大气状况,将这组由365张小图组成的北京大气状况组图在网络发布,每一张小图画面上都是北京电视台标志性的大高楼,唯一不同的是这栋高楼后面天空的颜色。从这组图中,可以直观地看到过去一年蓝天与雾霾所占的比重。 “希望大家看到了以后能开始关注并保护我们的生活环境。”邹毅认为,数据和理论都太抽象,不如图片来得生动形象。“一张图胜过千言万语,如果在同一时刻和同一地点拍下全年的照片,空气好坏自然而然地就显示出来了。” 自2013年1月27日开始,每天7点~19点半之间,邹毅用手机在自家的窗口拍摄当日大气状况照片,把照片发布在朋友圈和微博上。 “我的初衷是记录北京大气状况,给自己和朋友们看,当做一个纪念,回顾一下我们所经历的恶劣空气环境。”邹毅说。一开始他的朋友圈里并没什么反应,有鼓励的,也有开玩笑的。“你说这个也不能表达什么。”一位朋友在微信朋友圈里留言。 等到了第64天的时候,邹毅将所有的照片拼成了一张大图发布的时候,多日的大气状况直观地呈现在大家的眼前。 “很多朋友心态和观点开始发生转变,转变到和我站在一起,觉得我们现在应该关注环境。更多人不仅看照片,还鼓励我,他们会把这些图片拿来转发,在他们朋友圈转,影响越来越大。” 邹毅说。 朋友们的支持与鼓励,让邹毅意识到,这件事情不再是自己拍着玩而已,他感受到了责任。于是,他决定坚持拍摄一整年,看看空气到底怎么样。 发起全球“一目了然”活动 Amazon.com Widgets
