Taipei Youngsters' Hangout Spot - Ximending

4

A series of photos showing one of the liveliest areas in Taipei, Taiwan, called Ximending. This is where young Taiwanese gather for fun and entertainment.

In some big cities, there is always a special area where it is packed with young people, getting involved with the most up-to-date activities within the country. Like Shibuya in Tokyo, Japan for instance.

Located in Taipei city of Taiwan, Ximending also resembles one of those funkiest area within the city. Here, it is jam-packed with the newest fashions from all over the world (mainly Japan) and also some by local brands designed by young talents. Everywhere you see stalls selling little accessories from earrings to phone straps that shout out “cuteness” in your face. While walking on the streets in Ximending, do take a moment to stop at a stall or a shop and buy some delicious local snacks like the famous “ZhenNai” (abbreviation for Pearl Milk Tea). Oh, and let’s not forget about the various performances carried out by talented Taiwanese at night. You are sure to see crowds gathering around them, absorbed into the performer’s show.

If you ever have a chance to visit Taipei, do take the time to walk in Ximending and be sucked into a world filled with youth, fun and excitement.

    The young artist and Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson published on his agency's website an awesome photo series, one of the images in it a great symbol of freedom, joy of living outdoors, purity, innocence, candor, and girlhood: the bare sole of a female lifted up, taken at the Central Park in New York. Like many other great Magnum photographers, Anderson explored this interesting body part through photographs. For this tribute, I chose a series of bare feet images I took along the promenade of the lake Como. Take a look!

    A Salute to the Masters: Swing Festival in Como (A Tribute to Alexey Brodovitch)

    This year marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of one of the most influential photography books ever, "Ballet" by the photographer, art director, and graphic designer Alexey Brodovitch. Brodovitch took a series of photos of classical dance in a very unconventional way, using very slow exposure times, trying to catch the true essence of Russian ballets.

    Chlorophyll Prints by Binh Danh: An Interview

    In the work of Binh Danh, art is space for the unnamed to be seen. When war is the theme every detail counts. How does one person tackle this massive issue, where death and the value of lives intersect? A one-man job becomes a job about other men. And so for his series "Immortality: The Remnants of the Vietnam and American War" he made chlorophyll prints to express the indelible mark of war on various lands. Soldiers and laymen whose faces and records have been archived are given another chance to be remembered.
