For today’s Cameo we’re having 22 year-old Taiwanese photographer Jauchen Wu. Jauchen shares with us a group of single images—he doesn’t work within a project framework—where his friends’ bodies assume a certain lifeless quality, like they were marionettes and Jauchen a master of puppets.
Ciao Jauchen, how are you?
I’m doing well. Recently I’ve been getting ready for a new shoot and plan to start working on it in April.
What is photography for you?
Photography is how I connect with the world; it’s the best language to express myself.
What is your work about?
My personal works are all about my experiences in life, and especially my travels and the time I spend with my friends. Taking pictures is something I never plan—I just shoot whenever I feel like. It’s as if it quenches my thirst. I always wait for ideas to come to me, then transform the visions I’ve gathered in my head into reality. I really enjoy this process.
