Tao Lin Concludes iPhone Photo Documentary Series of Taipei


Yesterday, alt-lit author and experienced hamster artist Tao Lin published the last installment of a series of iPhone photos he’d taken for Vice during a recent trip to Taipei.

The final selection is entitled “Taipei metro” and includes melancholy, voyeuristic photos of various metro locations throughout Taipei.

The series was meant as a celebration of the release of Tao Lin’s latest novel, Taipei, which you can buy here. Click here if you want access to Lin’s complete photographic oeuvre (or if you simply want to trigger a Taipei-imagery-related sensation of ennui and existential malaise).

Paolo Yumol is an intern at The Rumpus. He attends Oberlin College and is very grateful to be doing any of this. More from this author →
