In the artist's own words: “7-11 stores are visible on every street in Taiwan. What Americans think of as a convenience store pales in comparison to the stores in Asia. At 7-11 (Taiwan), you can mail packages, order concert tickets, print and fax documents, eat lunch, and pay your bills. This is not among my most stunning photos from my time in Taiwan, but I believe it defnitely is one of the most representative photos pertaining to the daily lives of citizens there.”
