TC Lin

 

I was born on Christmas, more or less raised in the US, and immigrated to Taiwan in 1989. I've been a shoe inspector in Chinese factories, a TV news cameraman, and a conscripted soldier in the Taiwanese army. I write books, make films and play trumpet in a jug band. At present I'm an editor.

Throughout all of this I also take pictures, though I don't go out of my way to shoot any certain thing; my photos are simply things I see. But I would go insane if I didn't have photography to bring me and the world into some kind of understanding.
