In your bag 1073, Jack Huang
Jack shares with us not only his bag, but his hands and what looks like a very good book. Check it out.
My name is Jack Huang. I’m currently studying in Vienna, Austria as an architecture student. I picked up photography when I had the assignment of analysing Garry Winogrand’s work. Photography then became another way for me to explore myself while at the same time, explore something other than architecture.
Since I was born in Taiwan but left the country at the age of 2 to live in Africa and Europe, my brother and I are constantly trying to find our place in these two continents. A frequent question we have to our mother is if we should view ourselves as a ‚台灣人’ or a ‚外國人‘？I believe this is why I photograph the most during my travels, may it be a new city, country or even Taiwan.
I don’t own a digital camera, except the one on my phone. I don’t really enjoy it, so I thought I would use our library scanner to scan the stuff I usually have on with me (the book changes time to time). I carry the Konica Big Mini BM-201. A compact camera is all I need. Since the weather has gotten colder, I’m able to fit all this in my coat. The nike gym bag will be unfolded and used only if I need to carry something that won’t fit in my coat.
You can find some of my photographs on my tumblr: http://jckhng.tumblr.com/tagged/film/
Thanks for sharing your bag with us, Jack. That is a fascinating way to grow up, so many different cultures.
