25 Symbols From the Past
You’ll find traces of ancient Chinese culture and traditions all over Taiwan...
From the first moments after you’ll land in Taipei, it’ll be evident that Taiwan, in spite of being one of the most modern society in Asia, is still very attached to its past and its shared history with China.
You’ll come across remnants of traditional Chinese culture in modern cities as well as in tiny villages lost in the Taiwanese countryside. You’ll discover those symbols from the past everywhere – in people, buildings, objects, during Chinese festivals or simply while strolling around your hotel.
Addicted to Chinese culture
There is no question about it – I am totally addicted to ancient Chinese culture. I’ve spent countless hours, camera in hand, walking the endless lanes of Taipei, visiting temples in remote towns, asking questions to locals, always getting the most bizarre answers. I can spend hours on a street corner, or by a rice paddy, waiting for the elements to fit, for the light to be just right, for the composition to tell the story.
Here, I want to share with you my passion for ancient Chinese culture. Let me show you the story Taiwan has been telling me since I’ve made it my home. I hope you’ll enjoy these photos!
