Jointly organized by National Museum of History and Green Island Cultural Park, this photo exhibition shows early folk culture and lifestyles on Green Island, a small volcanic island in the Pacific Ocean, about 33 km off the eastern coast of Taiwan.
Green Island is often known as a place of exile for political prisoners during the martial law period in Taiwan during single-party rule, especially during the White Terror era. The island was also the original home to the Ami and Tao indigenous peoples.
Photos displayed in the exhibition are categorized into six categories, including image stories, festivals, art, industry, education and landscape changes. The old photos were taken by victims of political prosecution, reporters or local residents.
