The exhibition, entitled “History’s Shadows and Light”, was originally part of a larger exhibit that ended earlier in the year at the Taipei Fine Arts Museum.

It focuses on the work of photojournalists who captured Taiwan’s social and political transformations between 1986 and 1990- around the lifting of martial law in 1987. The themes of their work range for movements to secure political rights to farmers’ and workers’ movements and the environmental movement.

“History’s Shadows and Light” is set to open at Taiwan’s representative office in New York on August 29. It will run until October 12.    [SOURCE]
