We are heading to the Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts to dive into their latest group exhibition "Still Waters Run Deep". It explores some of the very profound existential themes, such as history, connection, meaning of words and imagery. 

 

This week, we are looking a set of photographs by Scottish photographer John Thomson, one of the earliest westerners to have traveled to Taiwan to document the local life.
