Farewell to The Fox: Teng Po-Jen’s Novel
To me, recalling my youth is never easy. My career in teaching has given me opportunities to observe the behaviors and creative ideas of university students. Through photography, their daily life experiences and feelings resemble a mirror, through which I can project myself back to my past.
