It is my aspiration to convey this unique Taiwanese industry and the abundant cultural messages it exudes with its dazzling totems and soaring ideas, eliciting people’s imaginations and connections to the culture of this peculiar entertainment business, which transcends time and space, bonds the horizontal and vertical, and links the planar and three-dimensional.—Shen Chao Liang

Stage is Taiwanese photographer Shen Chao Liang‘s documentation of the elaborate, unfoldable stage trucks used by performing bands, cabaret, dance and song groups throughout Taiwan. Shot at sunset with 4×5 color reversal films, Liang captures an incredibly unique piece of visual culture. The stages captivate and demand attention; their otherworldly appearance inducing a trance that seems to call us aboard a spaceship ready to take flight.
