Patrick Tsai's "The World Above" Giant Fantasy Fiction Photo Book Coming Soon!


"After three years of silence, what I finally have to say is this: there is nothing more powerful or moving than a good story, especially one well told."

「3年の沈黙のあと、僕が言いたいことはひとつだけ。良い物語、素晴らしい語りを持った物語ほど、力強く感動的なものはないのだ、と。」

Issue01 copy
Issue02 copy
Issue03 copy
Issue04 copy
Issue05 copy


Photographer Patrick Tsai puts down his camera and instead picks up a pen and some blank paper for his new ongoing series, "Flying Cats". With the same humor and insight into daily life as his critically acclaimed project “Talking Barnacles”, the comics of “Flying Cats” explores the fragile and awkward relationships between man and animal.

写真家パトリック・ツァイが、カメラの代わりに紙とペンを手にし、コミックシリーズ『フライングキャッツ』の制作に取りかかった。2011年にブログ上で発表した写真日記『トーキングバーナクル』にも共通する、彼独自のユーモアのある視点から、人間と動物のどこかぎこちなくて繊細な関係性を、日常生活を舞台に描き出している。

"Modern Times" Photo Book Selected by Writer/Curator Susan Bright for Time Magazine's "Best of 2012"!!


"...What I like about it really is its simplicity. It has a 'naivety' which is lost on so many photographers... There is nothing tricksy or conceptual here, just wonderful photographs beautifully edited into a book you want to hold...."- Susan Bright
