Artwork Appreciation
Photographer CHANG Liang-I grows up in a farming family. He records the changes of Taiwanese rural villages through his lens for years. He captures the passing away landscape for the age. In his work Farmer, at the center of the black and white photograph is a barebacked farmer wearing leaf hat with bare feet. He is bowing down and dealing with crops on the farm. The artist takes a picture of the working farmer’s back on purpose for showing the burning sunshine and the traces of diligent work on his body. CHANG Liang-I tries to represent the simple value of the rural life in order to inspire people to guard and treasure the land, so that the relationship between the land and people will be rebuilt. He hopes officials and managers of businesses take a look at these farmers who work hard for daily life.
