Born in 1972 in Chiayi, Chen Po-I was trained in the Ocean Engineering and got his master degree at National Cheng Kung University in Taiwan. As a photographer, Chen saw through the lens something that was reminiscent of his life within a larger context of Taiwanese society, and therefore his photographic shots were always pregnant with power to excite the collective memories of Taiwan. His photographic works were frequently invited and had been recently exhibited at Unseen History: Art of images in Kaohsiung (Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts; 2005), Second Vision (National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts; 2008), and Open City: Architecture in Art (Taipei Fine Art Museum; 2008). His works came into public notice internationally and in 2010 were invited to Russia to be shown at Novosibirsk International Festival of Contemporary Photography.


At this moment, Chen is actively engaged in the photography education and also works as an exhibition curator. Some of his photographic works now become the permanent collection at National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (Taiwan), Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts (Japan), and are also collected by private collectors.


Chen is currently a PhD candidate at the Department of Hydraulic and Ocean Engineering at NCKU.
