1943年出生於板橋,1965年畢業於台灣大學土木工程系。「隨時走路,即時在場」,張照堂自高中時期拿起相機開始拍照,至今未曾停歇。他的影像平凡中有超脫、親切又疏離、荒謬中具詼諧的特質,體現出攝影家敏銳的觀察、誠摯的理解,以及濃厚的關懷與同理心。他曾說:「攝影家尋找的不是風景,而是一種氛圍,一種狀態,它或許是浩巨的安靜與空無,或許是微妙的想像與期待,也可能是另一種呼之欲出的能量與騷動。」

  在超過50年的影像創作生涯中,他的作品涵蓋攝影、電視片、紀錄片與劇情片等。他的作品不僅反應時代脈動,也是深遠的歷史見證,曾多次獲頒重要文藝奬項,包括:金鐘奬(1976)、國家文藝奬(1999)、行政院文化奬(2011)等。此外,他也從事攝影與影片的策展與教學,同時策劃、主編、撰寫臺灣攝影家叢書與攝影主題專書,在影像美學的傳承、累積、推廣與提攜後進上,不遺餘力。


Born in Banqiao, 1943. Graduated from Department of Civil Engineering at National Taiwan University in 1965. “Wherever you go, you’re at the scene.” As a high school student, Chang Chao-Tang picked up his camera and began to shoot, and he has not stopped since. His images reveal transcendence amidst the commonplace, intimacy amidst alienation, humor amidst the absurd. They reflect the photographer’s acute observations and earnest understanding, his substantial concern and empathy. He once said, “Photographers seek less for a vista as for an atmosphere, a state of existence. They could be monumental silence and emptiness, or subtle fantasy and expectation, or perhaps an alternative ineluctable form of energy and excitement.

His career spanning more than 50 years has encompassed photography, television programs, documentary films and dramas. His works not only feel the pulse of his age, but are also far-reaching witnesses to history. He is the recipient of several major awards, including the Golden Bell (1976), the National Award for Arts (1999) and the National Cultural Award (2011). He has curated exhibitions and taught courses on photography and film. He has organized, edited and written books on Taiwanese photographers and photography. With unflagging dedication he has worked to pass on, build up and promote the legacy of both still photography and motion pictures, guiding the less experienced, making considerable contributions and casting a long shadow in his field.
