Rainbow Family Village: Taichung, Taiwan

by in photography, taiwan

A few months ago, I read a blog post by Steven Barringer on the Matador Network about Rainbow Family Village in Taichung, Taiwan. Making a mental note the next time I headed to Taiwan for business (which is usually twice a year), I was going to have to find this secret spot and take a few photographs. I was under the impression that not many Taiwanese knew about this place but when I arrived late in the afternoon on the Moon Festival holiday in September, there were many visitors taking pictures and chatting with the elderly man who painted the houses, streets and sidewalks in this petit community. The colours are vibrant and the illustrations hieroglyphic and occasionally ominous. You can see the complete set of images from my visit to Rainbow Family Village on my flickr page.
