China's Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) Art Museum is currently holding an exhibition of Cheng Tsun-shing's photo works titled Won't Somebody Bring The Light. The exhibition presents over 100 works that he shot during the 1970s as he traveled around Taiwan.

Born in Taipei, Cheng is a renowned scholar as well as a photographer. He studied drama, cinema, literature and linguistics in Paris and later became an associate professor at National Tsing Hua University in Taiwan.

At a press conference held last week, Wang Huangsheng, the curator of the CAFA Art Museum, told media how he felt Cheng's philosophy and sociology background enabled him to incorporate the mysterious relationships between human beings, time, work and reading in his works, thus allowing the exhibition to fully contain the artist's knowledge, thoughts and feelings on life and death.  

This is Cheng's second photo exhibition since his first 40 years ago.

"These images can only exist as a kind of mist that drifts and spreads through the air. They will never come together, nor belong to anyone," Cheng wrote in his introduction to the exhibition.
