After leaving home at 19, Juan I-jong left his foot-prints across Taiwan as well in remote corners of the globe, but he rarely returned to his roots. In 2017, Yilan Museum of Art’s “On the Way Home: A Retrospective Exhibition of Juan I-jong’s Photography” inspired him to commence his journey home. The inauguration of “Juan I-jong’s Gallery of Taiwan Story,” on January 1, 2018 marked the day that the longtime world wanderer finally planted his feet again in his hometown in order to use this space to recount tales of Taiwan.
