Realize environmental education.

“The works that Chi Po-lin spent twenty-five years and risked his life to make must be seen and continue to move the hearts of people living on this land.” It is such a belief that propels the Chi Po-lin Foundation and moves 8,052 contributors to generously support the establishment of the Foundation. Therefore, on the Earth Day (April 22) of 2019, the highly anticipated Chi Po-lin Museum, housed by the rear building of Douglas Lapraik & Co., was inaugurated.

Bringing together more then 600,000 invaluable image works by Director Chi, the Chi Po-lin Museum tells the stories about the land of Taiwan through thematic and curatorial exhibitions, while collaborating with Taiwanese and foreign image creators, who concentrate on ecological and environmental subjects. Through exchanges and dialogues, we have consistently conveyed and spread the true meaning of environmental friendliness and care for life. By doing so, the Chi Po-lin Museum has become an image base and dream-building platform of “the stories of Taiwan.”

The Chi Po-lin Museum cordially invites all to visit us on the Tamsui Old Street to re-connect with Taiwan through the director’s aerial view and listen to every heart-touching story behind every work.


The City, The Flâneur The City, The Flâneur

What city we see, depends on what home we envision.

Chi Po-lin

The story begins with meeting the "Birdwatcher". Cities that have always been viewed at eye level, through his bird-like vision, can now be viewed in a different perspective. We can explore the story of the cities and feel the fabric of the cities sewn together from the freshness and amazement of each photo.

Meeting you allows us to pick up fragments of the city, and put together silhouettes that are both strange and familiar.
Following you allows us to briefly leave the city, to also look back and focus on the present moment of life.

Beneath our cities lies those stories beyond what we see.

Beneath our cities lies those stories beyond what we see.
