                is a Taipei based analog photographer, who after struggling with his sexual orientation for years, finally came out and was able to embrace himself and his community.

 

Now, 526 helps others tell their stories. Through his writing and photography featured in publications like VOGUE Taiwan and Bedspread Zine from U.K.. He helps other queer and trans folks be seen. In his series “Rainbow in the Room,” he shows them, mostly in their own bedrooms.

 

I really hope to inspire people around the world, to evoke empathy! I actually created this project for homophobic and straight people as I hope they can understand LGBTQ+ people are humans too. We have joy, sorrow and dreams — no different from anyone else.

 

His work has been awarded an Honorable Mention in International Photography Award 2019. And featured on Out Magazine website.

 

He has published 5 books including “Journey to the Light of My Heart” with photography.

526 擅長捕捉人物自然的性感,有時也帶點迷幻和狂野,並非負面示範,而是透過想像力,面對這有時過於呆板的世界。


他曾以另一筆名出版五本書,含底片攝影散文集《尋找心裡的永恆陽光》,也為 VOGUE Taiwan、日本吉本興業、英國獨立雜誌 Bedspread Zine 等提供作品。
