    1st Place in Book

This collection is not a tourist book. It’s about how I see the street lives in four cities of Cuba (Havana, Vinales, Trinidad, and Cienfuegos) during my solo trip for 16 days in Jun 2018. I walked for more than 300,000 steps in four cities and live in a true Cuban’s life including love of family, romance, sports, leisure. Mostly, it includes a 9-image series (won 2018 IPA and MIFA) to record my personal engagement with a single-leg veteran in Havana. 57 images from the collection have been exhibited in Taipei Art Promotion Center in July 2019 alone with the publication of this collection.

Professional photography artist in Taiwan. Photo profile in diversity and street photography enthusiastic. Held solo exhibitions in two consecutive years in Taipei.
