Literally and metaphorically at the top of the dark, foggy, and usually rainy mountain area in New Taipei City, KCIS is a private elite school only families at the top of the socioeconomic pyramid can afford. Tired of driving their kids to classes, some of the parents simply built new homes nearby at the expense of environment and wildlife. Despite the parents’ effort, the everlasting fog detaches the schoolers from reality and deprives them of clarity, insight, and social knowledge, leaving them uncertain about the future and beyond.

I accept chaos and randomness and react impromptu to them in all genres of photography.
