Taipei Cultural Center of TECO in New York presents The View of Formosa's Landscape from Photographers. This exhibition features the work of fifteen photographers from both Taiwan and abroad, documenting Taiwan's natural and human landscape from a personal angle. Works displayed include photographs by the 19th century Scottish photographer John Thompson, picturing the dwellings of the Plains Aborigines in the valley of the Laonong River, and gorgeous vistas of Taroko Gorge and Jade Mountain (southeast Asia's tallest peak), as well as rare wild animals in natural environs. This show provides wonderful insight through the photographs of Taiwan in the 19th Century.
