Theme Description

"Specularity" originally refers to the fact that an object is reflected in plane mirror in two-dimensional space, and has a virtual image of the same size as the original object; however, scientific observation based on sight has achieved naturalistic photography since the invention of photography. American landscape photography from the 20th century onwards emphasized the sublime texture of the subject, and showed the relationship between people and the land through the contrast between natural landscape scenes and figures.  


"Specularity" places its focus on "Natural Landscapes in Our World", bringing together natural landscapes and cultural imagery captured by Taiwanese photographers. From documentary photography that represents distinctive cultures to digital images that connote unique social semiotics and spectacular scenes that are created through the transformation of material objects in order to convey the pure spirituality, the exhibition showcases how different artists capture natural scenes in varied styles and present the diversity of cultures with their exquisite creativity.
