Hire Grounds Cafe proudly presents the photography of Si-Long Chen during the month of July! Chen’s “Beauty of Taiwan and Everything About It” show offers select pieces for sale with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Goodwill of Middle Georgia & the CSRA‘s life-changing mission.

“I returned home in Taiwan back in November of 2016 after I got married. I took my newly-wed husband to see my family, in addition to showing him around the country. I was able to take pictures of beautiful wildlife and environment. I would like to share my experience with people of Augusta, GA. Wildlife in Taiwan is unique and the scenery is gorgeous. Even though Taiwan might be small, it’s filled with activities. You can climb mountains and travel through the jungles and learn about the history of Taiwanese aboriginal groups. You can shop in the busy cities or experience the slower rhythms of life in rustic villages. In the course of 14 days, I was able to take pictures of wildlife, architecture, and nature” said Si-Long.

Si-Long Chen, nicknamed Fox, was born and raised in Taipei, Taiwan. In 2006, she immigrated to the United States. After graduation from Lakeside High School, she attended Augusta University to study Communications and Fine Arts. Si-Long has been in marketing and administration after receiving her Bachelor’s degree. When Si-Long is not working in the office, she goes around the community to take photos for The Augusta Chronicle’s Spotted.
