Taiwan Academy in Los Angeles presents “The View of Formosa’s Landscape from Photographers,” a group exhibition from June 1st through Aug. 31st, 2015. The opening reception will host at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, June 11 and following a screening of “Zoom Hunting” at 7 p.m.
This exhibition features the work of fifteen photographers from both Taiwan and abroad, documenting Taiwan’s natural and human landscape from a personal angle. Works displayed include photographs by the 19th-century Scottish photographer John Thomson, picturing the dwellings of the Plains Aborigines in the valley of the Laonong River; scenes of swimmers in the Tamsui River shot by the venerable Taiwanese photographer Lee Ming-Tiao in the years shortly after the Retrocession; and gorgeous, vertiginous vistas of Taroko Gorge and Jade Mountain (southeast Asia’s tallest peak) captured by various noted photographers, as well as mist-clouded alpine forests, streams and waterfalls, photos of rare, iconic wild animals in their natural environs, and stunning aerial photographs of Taiwan’s Central Mountains.
