Gillaume Hebert "Taipei Riverside"







Taipei Riverside is the title of a series of 45 photographs, realized in autumn 2014. This series reveals the views of Taipei (capital of Taiwan) taken from the banks of the main rivers crisscrossing the city. It shows us a very different urban landscape that we can see in situ, from the street. Here we are on the margins, on the other side of the walls that protect Taipei floods: interesting perspective to photograph a city that has not been concerned with aesthetics and architectural appearance. This displacement also offers the opportunity to take a distance from a place so familiar that we do not pay more attention.
