About the Author


Karl Chiu is a photojournalist who is fully aware of his inclinations to seek out his own visual narratives. And with humor, he is ever widening his views on favorite social or personal issues. Educated in Taiwan (major in sociology) and the United States (major in photography) Karl aware but is also indifferent with the different identities of a Chinese photographer in different contexts. He pursues a “virgin eye” approach and is seeking the appearance of “angle” in his crafted black and white photographs. The humanistic as well as tactile quality of traditional photography gives him room to search of “angles” within the visual world.
