Children's Paradise [Chung Shan Creative Hub URS21]

Imagine if one day the giants throw their building blocks onto a green field, how interesting could that be?!

Colourful houses spread all over a green field vertically and randomly. At first sight, one would think that they are big building blocks of giants but after taking a closer look, they are actually colourful houses of different sizes and shapes. From the investigation in the growth of Asian population, the highly-packed living environment are causing buildings to be built vertically due to limited space. Buildings are extending vertically up to the sky and eventually outnumbering lower houses, which is why JUT Foundation for Arts and Architecture uses ‘The Vertical Village’ as the theme of this exhibition.

The big and tall buildings are like objects scattered all around, sitting on top of the small and low building blocks. Some days, the blue sky of the city may be fully covered by these tall buildings. What if one day our city has more of the lower houses instead of these tall and big buildings? In this way, our sky may be even vaster and wider and it’s easier to embrace the blue sky!

    A Color Remix

    It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.

    A Compilation of Lomo'Instant Stories

    There are many possible reasons for taking pictures. It could be to document an event, to capture breathtaking scenery, to preserve a fond memory, or simply, to have a snapshot of someone close to your heart. Whatever the reason, there's almost always a story behind a picture, no matter how significant or trivial it may be. And for lomographers, nothing beats the feeling of having that story unfold in your hand, in the form of a print. If you want a quick keepsake from that treasured moment or a snapshot of that special someone though, you can have it instantly, through Lomo'Instant Stories!

    Long Exposures Around Europe with the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.

    Doug DuBois on My Last Day at Seventeen

    Doug DuBois spent five summers photographing the small neighborhood of Russell Heights in Ireland to capture the essence of coming of age: the inevitable loss of youth and the imminent transition into adulthood. Those four years resulted in his latest book, My Last Day At Seventeen. The book is a visual tale told through a collection of photographs and gives an alternative perspective through a comic narrative around the same subject. This creative combination of two distinct narratives in one book not only works wonderfully in visual terms; it also serves as an essential tool that lets the reader dig deeper into the story being told, making one go back to the book over and over again, yet from a new perspective, every single time.
