STORY

SHORT LIST

Statement

Invisible Border

These photographs were shot in Taiwan and North Eastern China (former Manchuria) with both a history of Japanese occupation.
Each, although having experienced a resembling historical background, has accumulated varying yet multilayered facets in politics, culture, climate, and has reached the state that it is now. It was my intention to depict the invisible border between these two lands by consciously photographing the banality of the sites instead of the architecture symbolic of their history with an unbiased perspective.
“Under the light, everything exists equal to each other.” — This is the philosophy I keep in mind when taking photographs. By facing what is visible, we notice what is unseen. Thus, I want to allow the audience to imagine the story behind every image.
