CHINA-TAIPEI-STUNTMAN-ACROBATICS-MR CANDLE-PERFORMANCE (CN)

(120527) -- TAIPEI, May 27, 2012 (Xinhua) -- Huang Ming-Cheng exercises on the shore of the Sun Moon Lake in Yuchi, Nantou, southeast China's Taiwan, May 26, 2012. Huang Ming-Cheng, a 29-year-old stuntman, is popular around Taiwan for his performance of standing on his head and taking photographs of different places. Mr Candle is what spectators dub him because he looks like a candle while making snapshots that way. And he loves the nickname. I have been dreaming of standing on my head and taking pictures since the age of 13, Huang said. I'd like to continue my project around Taiwan and even the world. Huang took photos at various locations to realize his dream: at cliff edges, on sea rocks, on roof tops and, for once, on the back seat of a running scooter. Meanwhile, Huang often stages acrobatic performance on the street to earn his living. Sometimes he gives inspirational speeches at the invitation of schools and companies, by which he earned money to buy car and camera as well as to conduct personal photo exhibitions.
