(Canon A1)

The Rainbow Village (彩虹卷村) was built in the 1940s -1950s to house soldiers and their families. As time went by, it slowly became a permanent dwelling for its settlers. One of the veterans there, 87-year-old Huang Yung Fu, turned the village into a giant piece of artwork in recent years by covering the walls and ground with his drawings. This has, in a way, prevented the demolition of the village and it is now preserved as a unique cultural asset.

I’ve been wanting to check out the Rainbow Village ever since I learnt about it some time back. The perfect opportunity presented itself when I made a trip to Taichung last Sep. Although the village was smaller than I’d expected, it was still quite a sight. I even managed to catch a wedding shoot in action!
