With a camera photographers often take shots reflecting the social issues of the day. But Patrice Delmotte, a well-known fine art and studio photographer, and the photographers who make up the Taiwan Exchange Photography Club (TEPC) have often stepped out from behind the lens to help various charitable organizations in Taiwan.
