I rarely get excited enough about an event that I have to post about it here. However, one of the best photojournalists in Taiwan is hosting an exhibition of his work and grand opening today at 3:00pm in Taipei. I will not be in town until early July so would like to see if anyone is interested in heading over and I can provide some basic Mandarin > English translation. Group trip!
Date: July 14th, Sunday
Time: 12:30 pm
Contact: Email me!
You can obtain an understanding of the unspoken tragedy in Changhwa, where the construction of the world’s first petrochemical factory have afflicted fishermen and residents with one of the highest cancer rates anywhere. And yet, few know. This is the true Taiwan. This powerful exhibition will run through July 21st.
A taste of the extraordinary photography in the news article written by this talented young photojournalist. While not all of us can read Mandarin, one of the key purposes of photography and imagery is to convey the story and emotions without having to say one word.
I push this because we need to understand what tragedy unfolds in Taiwan; in addition, Edd Jhong is an active journalist involved with many of the issues pertaining to human rights locally.
