Cross contemporary-era, celebrating the 175 anniversary of the invention of Photography

The 4th Edition TAIWAN PHOTO in 2014 presented a broad spectrum of contemporary photography from 1839 to 21st Century and was entitled, “Platinum & Palladium Printing” to celebrate the 175th anniversary of the invention of photography.

Taiwan currently offers a wide range and variety of art fairs, but this exhibition is a unification of International and professional art fairs which focuses solely on unique photographic based artworks. TAIWAN PHOTO is going to exclusively present a wide range of museum-quality work; including contemporary, modern and nineteenth-century photographs, as well as photo-based art.
