I'm an American who was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship in Photography to Taiwan in 1998 to create a photography book about Taiwanese culture. Since 1998 I have spent four years traveling Taiwan, taking over 20,000 photographs of many aspects of this unique and diverse culture.
I have recently completed the design of this beautiful book, and am now looking for either individual or group sponsorship to fund the printing costs that will enable me to self-publish this work.
Besides nearly 100 photographs that celebrate Taiwan's rich culture, the book also contains writing and powerful posters that are very pro Taiwan independence and deals directly with China's ruthless and despicable attempts to annex Taiwan. This book will be sold and marketed throughout the US, Europe, and Asia.
My goal and my hope is that the book will assist in creating more awareness of Taiwan's historical fight to stay a free and democratic country.
I have recently created a website for my book that contains photographs and more information for prospective sponsors.
The website address is: http://taiwanskin.googlepages.com
I reside in Kaohsiung with my wife. Thank you very much for your time.
