Taiwanese Classified by Ron See
Limited edition of 12 + 2AP
This work shows a job advertisement from a Taiwanese newspaper. Every single advertisement tries as loudly as possible to fight for attention. I can well imagine that the color palette has evolved over the years, almost in a Darwinian way. Each individual indication (if one may consider it an organism) is subject to a number of limitations, e.g. the colors that can be printed or the square centimeter price for each placement. There is a certain balance created in which even a pair of black ads are particularly prosperous as their environment is dominated by white and yellows. There are some big scoreboards that are easy to read and yet they are integrated into the surrounding network. At the same time, smaller scoreboards seem to fulfill their role in a quiet yet effective manner. One can only imagine what would happen if the newspaper (with respect to the little "organisms" seen as nature) would change the rules of this visual battlefield by e.g. change their price structure or introduce a new color.
Ron See is a photographer based in Australia who shoots street photography and urban landscapes. Colours and shapes are an essential part of his graphic and clean style.

About the artist
Marius Vieth (now known as Vijce) has by far been the strongest influence on me. I started doing photography by simply trying to copy his style. Although I think I have gradually moved away from him and have since explored different styles, he still has a strong influence on my street photos. Other than that, the only other person who I think has a strong influence on me so far has been William Eggleston's famous colour works. I don't think I ever really paid any attention to colours until I saw his photos.
