"A sense of place" is a contemporary photographic plan which started since 2011. This plan focus on unique scenes in modern Taiwan city.
These photographs were made by 120 film camera in the evening with long-time exposure. I explored the city to find some juxtapositions of different kind of buildings, or buildings that are deteriorating set against a newer building next to it. People are there but not there. For me, these buildings are alive, full of decaying, degradation, decline, rejuvenation, and revitalization. The collage of these buildings forms a process of generation and regeneration, and the concept of generation and regeneration representing a simultaneous existence of deterioration and life.
The long exposure of these scenes becomes a pathway to expression of life, drawing our attention to the everyday- what we might bypass- and inspiring us to take another look, and developing a sense of place.
