Patrick Tsai's New Book "Barnacle Island" 「潜水球」is Now on Sale!










(Photo by Kenryou Gu and Jen Xu)

In the form of a Japanese paperback novel, Barnacle Island maybe the first photo book of its kind. Regardless of its small size, the photographs inside do not lose their impact, but instead gain a deeper sense of intimacy. Take it with you anytime and anywhere with ease.


"Barnacle Island" Photo Book Production Diary Begins!


"Barnacle Island" ONLINE photo diary is stopped for good since it will be released in its final form as a PHOTO BOOK this summer. To promote the book (and to relieve stress), the original Tumblr site will now be used as an PRODUCTION DIARY (with illustrations instead of photographs) regarding the progress of the book.

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。」

Patrick Tsai's "Flying Cats" Comics, Issue #1-5, Now On Sale!!


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。
