Bio
Ash Lin is a Taipei-based photographer/ videographer/ music journalist / music event producer. Deeply immersed in rave and underground culture during her 4-year stay in London, her relocation back to Taipei never means to exclude herself from this influentially vibrant scene. Apart from her commissioned projects, she does photography and visual materials for Beijing-based music label Do Hits and Taipei’s music collective UnderU from time to time. As a person holding triple identities: witness of electronic music scene, photo taker, and full-time raver, her audio experiences and partners in crime’s stories drive her to visually archive what she’s been told and listening.

Currently she’s the A&R and PR of NXWV Media powered by Guerrilla Group and the core crew of Taiwan’s first large-scale electronic music and digital  arts event SYNERGY FESTIVAL



台湾出身のAsh(アシュ)。4年間ロンドンに住んでいた間、アンダーグラウンドカルチャーに慣れ親しみ、台湾に帰国した後も常に小さくとも活気溢れるサブカルシーンを追っている。Ashの3番の顔といえば、エレクトロミュージックシーンのちょっとしたインサイダー、写真家、パーティー好き。音楽経験や音楽関係の友人達から聞く話に掻き立てられ、自身の見聞を視覚的にアーカイブしてしまいがちのようである。


Education
