Finding the Rabbit
Friday, March 02, 2007
A little while back, I decided to try what I called a "photographic series," making it sound a lot more artistic than it really is. Umbrellas are intrinsic to Taiwanese society, used in all weather, or as canes, cattle-prods, and to carve out a bit of personal space in very crowded places. There are rules, or at least protocols, for umbrellas in public places like stores and restaurants. Superstition forbids opening an umbrella indoors because it provides a dark space for ghosts to hide under. I tried to capture the umbrellas in their various forms. Eh, it's more fun than artistic, but here you go.
