Jonathan Burke, VDXX

Jon Burke and his wife Deni moved from Australia to Taiwan in 2004. He became increasingly involved in the indigenous community, first as a volunteer photographer supporting indigenous activities and documenting social events and protests, and later as a founding member and photographer of Brightside Projects (an NGO dedicated to social welfare for marginalized groups). He also spent a year learning Atayal, the dialect of the indigenous tribe to which he is closest.

Artist’s statement

My work aims to raise the profile of indigenous culture in broader society, help give a voice to indigenous concerns, and improve people’s understanding of the indigenous community by breaking down stereotypes.
