Born and raised in Taiwan, Liang-Pin Tsao is an artist based in Taipei, Taiwan. He holds an MFA degree from Pratt Institute, and is the recipient of Fulbright Grant, New York Residency Program sponsored by the Ministry of Culture Taiwan, and Paris Photography Exchange Program sponsored by French Office in Taipei, among others. His recent works, “Becoming ‧ Taiwanese,” investigate the Chinese Martyrs’ Shrines in Taiwan and the relational tension between colonial history, self-identity and value awareness especially in light of transitional justice and biopolitics.
Liang also devotes himself to public service and open culture. In 2016, he established Lightbox Photo Library, a non-for-profit organization, which is free and open to all. Employed as a method, Lightbox strives to preserve, disseminate and advance local photographic perspectives and creative practices through various kinds of public programs and educational projects, aiming to practice the values of intellectual freedom, cultural equity and the co-creation of photographic culture.
