Taiwan Sugar Museum in Redscale.

Negative0-10-7A(1)

Having loaded the Lomo LC-A+ with redscale film, I could only imagine what these pictures would look like as I snapped away at the Taiwan Sugar Museum (台灣糖業博物館). I wish I had a wider lens to capture the magnitude of the enormous machines in the refinery but I am so glad this was the film that was in my camera. Many of these would have been underexposed had I used normal color negative but instead they are beautiful silhouettes against a fiery orange.

Taiwan Sugar Museum.

The sugar museum (台灣糖業博物館) was definitely the highlight of our Kaohsiung trip for me – it used to be so inaccessible before the metro started service but now it’s just a short walk from MRT Ciaotou Sugar Refinery Station. The locals love to visit this old sugar refinery turned museum for a “rustic experience” but, really, it is so much more than that. We went on a quiet Thursday with almost no other visitors and standing inside the abandoned refinery, I was drowning in the silence of a prominent past that has faded so completely with time. I used the Lomo LC-A+ for the pictures I took inside the refinery on redscale film – some of which I’m really excited to share with you in the next post.
