LAST LETTERS (2017 －ON GOING )
A Photographic Investigation, Chapter I
Supported By Magnum Foundation
"The struggle of man against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting."
- Milan Kundera, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting
Last Letters is a visual and archival investigation into a dark chapter of Taiwan’s hidden history, political past & taboos and societal amnesia during political suppression and dictatorship of 1949-1991. The images I’ve made and archival material I’ve collected speak to the hidden traumas and memories that have passed on, one generation to the next. Underlying these excavated memories are the absent presences — which leave their traces in the past, present and future.
Project is currently in progress.
