Taiwan 16/4-6/5 2013, locations outside of Taipei

Yingge, Train Station



Taroko National Park at Hualien



Recently I had the opportunity to go to Taiwan again for one month, it was a busy month and I did not really have a lot of time for my self, but of what little time I had I used it to carry on with my research. I managed to take quite a few pictures, but as usual I was particularly selective choosing ones I felt most stood out. However with the pictures here I feel there seems to be more of a connection or relationship in terms of the subject matter, they all seem to express a common goal.

There are too many pictures to place on one post so I have separated them out according to location, these were all taken outside of Taipei City. 

I think what really stands out to me is the way in which all of these photos seem to act in a way as a documented recording of the spaces I have travelled through. Each picture when put together progressivly tells a story documenting time and space. But I also recognise that these structures and the space that they occupy is transient and has the potential to change in the future. Perhaps they will degrade over time not cared for, or even be rebuilt into something different, or maybe something new will replace it altogether perhaps. I suppose this is a reflection of the time we live in as we strive to constantly build a better world tailored for our needs. So it seems then that Taiwan is developing its cities quite rapidly, in most places I went to I could see new built environments being created.

Please continue onto my other post (Locations inside of Taipei) for more information.
