While driving around the southern part of Taiwan, I stumbled on a temple procession. Processions are often lead by a Spirit Medium, or ‘Tongji’. Tongji push their bodies to the extreme and self-mutilation is quite common. They are believed to be earthly, living vehicles of Divine expression. In this particular scene, the Tongji is traveling with his chariot, cigarette in hand; the spiked ball that he is flagellating himself with is still attached to the skin of his back.  His ear is noticeably mutilated. The blue of the sky, and the bright summer light highlight this small scene.

‘I encountered this ‘八家將’ taking a rest during a temple celebration in Taiwan. “八家將” or ‘The Eight Generals’ personify the Gods of the Underworld. They are responsible for capturing ghosts and evil spirits and bringing safety, good luck and protection for worshippers. Their painted faces and patterns symbolize many aspects of the faith. While ‘working’ the 八家將 are not supposed to talk, eat, drink or smile. However, here, through the makeup,  while on a quick smoke break, he smiles for the camera. This picture was shot with my trusty, more than 10 year-old MJU II.’

‘ Keeping up with ‘八家將’ tradition, none on these guys smiled or waved. They remain focused on their faith, and even while resting, their posture stays firm.

‘ My first encounter with a ‘Tongji’ was a bit of a shock, as at the time I didn’t know much about this aspect of Taiwanese culture.  It was fascinating to witness firsthand. The ‘Tongji’ here is self-mutilating in a crowd of worshippers to demonstrate his divine power to others.’

‘ Up until the mid 90’s, the city of Kaohsiung, was one of the busiest port cities in the world. Though over time, production has shifted to different parts of the country, and inevitably to cheaper parts of the world.  Kaohsiung has been slowly trying to restructure itself and change its image from an industrial port to more of a livable city. While some ports have been  successfully repurposed, others have been left to rot.  Old or new, these waterfront ports are still a frequented destination by local fisherman.

Here’s a glimpse of classic, slow Sunday in Kaohsiung; A lone fisherman at the port, trying to catch his dinner.’

‘This was one of my first pictures taken in Taiwan, I was still jet-lagged and trying to make sense of it all. As much as my surroundings seemed different, some things were very familiar.
I abandoned my habit of taking crooked pictures here, and tried to find balance in the composition. This man was in front of me, looking to the right and gearing up for his start. I guess I felt like that too, looking at a brand new start.’

‘Traveling around the island of Taiwan by scooter is a must. You encounter so many villages, towns and different landscapes. Like in other countries, as soon as you leave the urban environments, and enter the countryside, you are able to see the strong role religion plays in daily life.
I’ve been always a fan of these roadside golden statues of buddha and other gods.
I like the fact that they are in their own ‘aquarium’ and protected from dust & rain.’

‘This is a picture of ‘南灣遊憩區’ beach during winter time. In the background is the Mannshan Nuclear Power Plant.
This was the ‘first of the roll’ taken with a A-1 Canon. I like the simplicity, calm and the ‘light burn’ that gives this picture a sense of faded memory.’

‘ For a good part of my photographic career I ran a studio, mainly focused in fashion editorals. Like everything else, it came to a natural end. Just as I was throwing in the towel on that part of my life, this photo came to light; dead flowers on the floor of the cyclorama I built.’

‘ I like how in Mexico death is very present in everyday life. There’s not much to say about this picture, just that I liked the colors of this small chapel. To my surprise when the film was developed, a major light leak in my camera created a pinkish effect over top. As if a spirit was passing by, or maybe its just a ‘happy accident’, either way, it just reaffirms why I took this picture in the first place.’

‘ While traveling in Arizona, U.S.A, I had a Polaroid Land 103 with FP 100-C with me to document my surroundings (that’s back when FP 100-C was still widely available and only cost around 12$ for the pack). The cactus in the photo, seems to be making the ‘Peace’ sign, sending a ‘everything will be all right’ kind of message. Camping in deserted places can be so powerful, you realize how small we are in this world. (The polaroid was scanned on a flatbed scanner from the early 2000’s, with a lot of funk and dust)’

‘In 2009, I started documenting the work of famous Canadian rock star Jean Leloup. I was fortunate to accompany him on everything from studio recordings to concert tours, and all the in-between moments of his life. The journey lasted almost 4 years.
This picture was taken backstage in his dressing room before he started his sold out tour ‘Mille Excuse Milady’. I like the pose of Jean here; a Diva kind of attitude. Truly a one of a kind person. (This photograph was also used for posters advertising the tour).’
