BackYang Chih-hsin: Bumper Harvest

Theme Description

Yang Chih-hsin worked for the JCRR in the 1950s, during which the Sino-American cooperation under Cold War reached its peak. This also marks the most prolific period in Yang Chih-hsin’s photography career. The Harvest magazine sought to transmit agricultural knowledge and technology to farmers through a large number of images. While busy working on the go, Yang Chih-hsin also took a lot of photos regarding agriculture, the countryside, and farmers. As a professional photographer, he captured images in his workplace and took up his documentary responsibilities. As a creative photographer outside of work, he leveraged a different perspective, brought forth the realistic artistry of photography and presented a memory woven with harvest and abundance.
