Michael Jang: The Jangs

Michael Jang: The Jangs at Stephen Wirtz Gallery. "...The Jangs presents a look into the lifestyle of a Chinese-American family in the context of the American mainstream of the 70s, a cultural view largely unseen in the photography of the era. While other photographers were critically investigating American suburbia as a crucial subject, Jang responded with his own unique approach. By delving deeply into the daily lives of his own family and relatives, he captured sharp, spontaneous, and intimate images that reveal a singular view of America, one in which issues of suburban dystopia and clashing cultures are overwhelmed by his family’s joyful embrace of the American experience."
