The Thermos Foundation has organized the World Press Photo exhibition for 15 years, housing it first in Eslite Bookstore in Dunhua and then at the Shilin Paper Factory.
Two years ago, they moved the show to Studio 94, a refurbished luxury home on a mountain. It’s remote, but the upside is additional space and a calmer neighborhood, said Thermos Foundation gallerist Kay Chuang (莊秀隆).
The show’s new location has also thinned its crowd, Chuang said.
“Back when we were at Eslite, the exhibition was easy to get to and there were so many visitors. Now we’re seeing fewer people, but they tend to stay for a long time,” she said.
