In May 2018, Chiayi city of Taiwan was holding disabled athlete sports games, which is like Paralympics on a small scale. These sports games aim to encourage people with disabilities to go outdoors and have a healthier life. Disabled people need to work out to prevent their bodies from degenerating faster. People with disabilities have a very hard time physically, mentally and emotionally to adjust themselves to daily life. When I photographed those disabled athletes, I caught some vulnerable eyes. Wish this kind of sports games could be held more often worldwide.

Currently live in Taipei, Taiwan. Have lived in the US for about 25 years in the past. The years I spent in different places gives me multi-culture experience and helps me discover the world from different cultural perspectives. I consider myself a visual person, like to see beautiful things ranging from scenery, architecture to wildlife, etc. I can be reached at pistachu9@gmail.com.
