Photographer's Note

What shall we do?

All this useless beauty?


Another shot from an article I am writing and shooting that hopes to be published later this year.

Cosmetics are HUGE business in Taipei. The major department stores all give their best floor space, that on the main floor, to the sale of ladies' and men's cosmetics and fragrances. Being honest, the ladies'are the target demographic. Here, one of the companies has a lot of people working, doing make up for some of the shoppers in the foreground while working on a paid model (interestingly, Caucasian and not Asian/Chinese) on the main stage so to speak. As you can see, the crowds that are attracted are considerable and I am sure that revenues are good too.

There will probably be a few other posts from luxurious and modern settings such as this, but I will also be checking into the "old school", splashy treatments which are also common here in Taiwan. I have lots of ideas on this piece and can see lots of possibilities, so who knows what will come up?
