Eugene Lee /台裔美籍，以《腳印》映照人從哪裡來終往何處去，簡單又耐人尋味的意象。 Norman Negre /菲裔美籍，他的《賜予和取回》記錄了夏威夷大島變遷中的漁村和生死存在與永恆的探討。 Lance Hamasaki /日裔美籍，以寫給太太的俳句，搭配老樹孕育出生命正能量，並以蛞蝓象徵慢活哲學。
In addition to “faithfully reproducing nature”, photography also reflects on the differences in geographical environments, social cultures, and scenes from daily life. For this international photography exhibition, my residency program at New Taipei International Artist Village is planning to specially invite three local and three foreign photographers.
Eugene Lee / Taiwanese-American, he uses “Footprint” to portray simple and thought provoking imagery that reflects on where people come from, and where they will go. Norman Negre / Philippine-American, his “Giveth And Taketh” documents the changes to a fishing village in Big Island of Hawaii, and explores the themes of life, death, and eternity. Lance Hamasaki /Japanese-American, pairs a haiku he wrote to his wife with the positive energy of life nurtured by old trees. Furthermore, he creates the image of slug to symbolize the philosophy of slowness.
After work, Wen-Lin Kang unwinds through photography, often feeling “the Bright Rays of Sunset” while sharing the beauty of Tamsui with others. Wen-Chou Li draws from the God Pigs contest commonly found in Taiwanese traditional ceremonies, “Transform” emphasizes a spirit of animal protection through vegetarian God pigs. Jimmy Cheng’s “Father and Son Fishermen”, we witness the value of family, but also the gradual decline of some traditional industries. While viewing the beauty of the riverside on the roof of the artist village, I began wondering to whom the front row of the riverside belongs. As a result, the idea came up to invite viewers to participate in “the Point Out the Most Unpleasant Scenery Award“.
Photographers concern environment-friendly issues, love to settle their homes near the waters, fuse the circulation of colonial cultures among island countries, present the island landscapes and cultures across the Eastern and Western islands, share creativity with one another, reflect the viewpoints of decentralization between local residents and Asian-Americans, and represent the warm border aesthetics.
