“Raw Soul”, Yehlin Lee’s photobook debut, consists of photographs taken between 2011 and 2017. The deeply colourful images — each a strong, sensitive photograph that fascinates on its own — add up to form a carefully observed portraiture of his hometown Taiwan. In the afterword, Lee, also a successful sound artist, outlines his approach to photography:

“In my creative process over the years, I first learned how to listen, and then to look. The difference between the two sensory experiences is that looking is more constrained by one’ own intentions. We only see what we want to see, and follow what we are capable of seeing. But one cannot escape from listening. The only thing one can do about listening is unconditional acceptance […]
I want for the inner background noise to quiet down. To simple feel, without bearing any intention.”
