A lovely relaxing day spent at the Formosan Aboriginal Culture Village. I have been living in Taiwan for four years and regret not coming here sooner.
Spending a lovely day at the Formosan Aboriginal Culture Village, such a great place. It’s a place mixed with natural beauty, fun and history. In my opinion, they are losing many things in Taiwan and one of the most important things I feel, is their indigenous culture. Walking around and taking in such beauty and looking at and understanding this dying culture made me believe that it is such an important part of Taiwan and being Taiwanese.
Here are a few photographs of the day I had at this wonderful place.

Love is in the air here at Lomography and in lieu of our 25th anniversary, what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day by going back to the 101 and the Lomo basics? Here’s how Lomographers captured retro love, in the soulful beat of the 90’s.
Wherever I go I am drawn to cemeteries, as the culture of death always tells a lot about the people, who live it. In the Philippines I stumbled about a variation of outstanding customs and rituals that left me partly in awe. This is a tale of life and death in the Philippines.
The best artists are not the popular or the wealthy ones. Not all the time, and definitely not 'often'. It's the passionate artist, who's a hero of his or her own right. Japanese photographer Mii Yatogi breathes, lives, and sleeps analogue. Read our interview with her here at Lomography Magazine.
100-year-old Apo Whang Od is most likely the oldest tattoo artist in the world. A living legend in the Philippines, she has mastered the indigenous inking art of the batok and is a fascinating testament to the culture of the butbut people in Northern Luzon.
One thing is for sure - people all around the globe love celebrations. Just the thought of going on holidays and spending time with your loved ones is enough of a reason to celebrate and fully enjoy your days off. In many countries, Christmas is celebrated differently depending on the culture.
