台南人，西班牙卡斯提亞拉曼洽大學(Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha)人文學院跨文化研究博士候選人，國立台南藝術學院博物館學研究所碩士。
HUANG Jalo, born in Tainan, is the doctoral candidate of Cross-cultural Research of the School of Humanities in Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha in Spain and an MFA from the Graduate Institute of Museology in Tainan National College of the Arts.
Huang is currently an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Program of Fashion and Performance in Kun Shan University, CEO in Tainan Civilian Think Tank, an advisor for Hayashi Department Store (Managed by Koche Development Company Limited), the founder and Committee Member of Tainan Cultural Property Association. His articles are widely published in different journals.
As an advocate for culture, Huang is enthusiastic about literature and art. He had been learning music and fine arts from a young age but then changed his path to write reportage, take photos, and make films. He studied museology in the graduate institute and then moved on to the doctoral program of cultural research in Spain. After returning to Taiwan, he started his career in university as an Assistant Professor. Creation for him is now more about teaching rather than realizing ideas by hands.
My creation is to construct time and memories. I’ve searched from thousand photos trying to piece together the fragmented memories about salt-making history. In 2000, I worked in Salt Glory Cultural and Educational Foundation to help found Taiwan Salt Museum. We’ve traveled through the hundred-kilometer long coastlines seeking for the archives and historical documents related to salt from the factories and office buildings of TAIYEN (Taiwan Salt Corporation). Thousands of photos are found and I intend to use relevant images to bring visitors back in the days when the breeze was filled with the smell of salt.
