Friend of mine, she had studied in Taipei.
And she had done amazing photography with her camera
and every single photo I went through looked so beautiful. So I did some research on Taipei.
And I was so amazed by everything I saw, it’s absolutely mind-blowing.
I’d like to see country in the world eventually, but Taiwan was my first choice of all countries.
I had an image on my mind and I wanted to check if the image I had actually resembled the reality.
One of the main reasons why I wanted to go to Taiwan is that
I knew it is a safe place for female especially when you are traveling alone.
What I love most about Taipei is you can just take the MRT and drive right into the most wonderful Taiwanese landscape. I’ve never seen that before.
You walk through the city of Taipei; you cross Taipei 101.
You walk pass the beautiful campus, you walk pass the street kitchen and everything, and then a couple of days ago I went to Maokong.
That was a dream for me to come true, I’ve never been there before and I’ve always wanted to be able to take a photo of tea.
To europeans it’s actually really special to see how tea grows.
I was able to do that in Taipei, and I was nearly crying because I was so happy.
I would really consider Taipei to be a photographer’s paradise
because it is an incredible mixture of this wonderful metropolis.
Where you have these vibrant colors of masses of people running around.
You have lots of bright colors so you can use color film.
You can use black and white film because you have these beautiful surfaces.
Then again normal color film to experience the greens and the browns and the nature, and also the blue tones and the beautiful flowers.
I would say that in a way Taipei offers you a variety of images that I have not experienced in any other country or city before.
The reason why I chose to do analog photography is because it gives you the opportunity to combine objective travel photography with.
The more emotional art form of photography.
My pictures reflect not just where I go but also how I feel.
So I would say that is what makes my kind of photography special in a way.
I am Deborah, after 9 wonderful days in Taipei, I’m moving on to my next adventure.
