Taipei, June 20 (CNA) Photographer Adam Ferguson, whose portrait of Taiwanese president hopeful
Tsai Ing-wen made the cover of TIME magazine’s Asia edition but drew mixed reactions in Taiwan, has found the local response to his photo interesting and asked netizens to provide more of their thoughts.
Ferguson said on his Facebook page that he appreciated different opinions of his work after it drew some criticism on the Internet, mostly accusing him of making the 58-year-old Tsai look older than she is.
“I actually think the image is quite stoic in nature and depicts Tsai Ing-wen in a positive way,” Ferguson said Friday, in response to one of his admirers who shared feedback from Taiwanese netizens on his page.
Many of Tsai’s supporters and some local media said the portrait made Tsai “look old” and as though she “has poor skin.” [FULL STORY]
