The Taiwanese Photographer/ Early Music musician Martin Chiang is traveling around the world searching for authentic culture manifestations and working as a portrait photographer.
​Having ​graduated from ​the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Basel, ​Switzerland, with master degrees ​in the field of European early music as a historical bassoon player,​ ​he learned how to see observe’ and respect the world and ​its people, recognizing and ​attempting to capture unchanged their unique authentic style​s.
During his study in Austria and Switzerland, he regularly visited museums such as ​the Kunst ​Historisches ​Museum of Vienna, where he got in touch ​with and ​was impressed by the old Renaissance and Baroque masters​’ works, their simple lighting and authentic portraits paintings that make a 16 century daily life scene look astonishing.
Later on he started to take photos of musicians and performers in such a fashion.
His background as a musician gives him an understanding of ​performance and its needs, how ​things should be shown in public, and as well a​n insight into the ​daily life of the people behind the professions.
 
 
His interests are broad, ranging from cooking, ho​me design, to writing and traveling. ​Traveling ​the world ​particularly plays an important roll ​in his life, ​regularly dedicating his time to the exploration of Europe, Asia,​ the Middle East and Africa, ​going deep ​in context in order to photograph the most authentic cultural elements, places and people around the globe.
 
He often compares photography to his understanding of Early ​Music ​performance; it’s a matter of conveying an ​atmosphere, an attitude and style, ​a process that starts ​with respecting the subject as is, reading and interpreting in a​n honest way, to finally ​bring it in contact with ​your personal emotion and creativity.
 
He worked ​(not ‘works’ maybe?) with several travel agencies, musicians, ​orchestras ​and ​magazines, playing in concert halls and participating in CD productions.
His works ha​ve been published on ​the ​Air ​China inflight magazine, ​as a cover photo ​on the Taipei National Concert ​Hall magazine, ​as CD ​booklet photos ​for the Deutscher Grammerphone ​label, and ​​on Ynet​, the Israeli news and general content website.
 
When he is not traveling as a photographer or performing ​in concerts, he writes articles as a columnist, and is passionate about cooking, striving to learn the ways of ​the different cultures, especially those of his homeland Taiwan and of the people related with the Silk Road.
