BEITOU DISTRICT — The architecture here is quite impressive. It’s a local favorite for photoshoots and for good reason. Many people like to take pictures in front of the pond with the building in the background, but don’t forget to check out the wide-open vista out back.
This is a series inspried by the popular video game featuring street photography by Andrew Haimerl.
The rise of the Cyberpunk genre seems to correlate with a dystopian future that we all dread. But many scenes in Taipei suggest that we are already living in that world. Taiwanese people live under mass government surveillance, rigid power structures, and the ever-present threat of war.
The buildings look more like prisons than homes, and the often gloomy weather seems to entrap people further into this depressing industrialized world.
While the photos in this series are full of vibrant colors that inspire artists…
