Who is Michael Jang?

Three cheers for municipal arts programs. As a student, Jang’s hobby was street photography. This interest was crowded out as his career in commercial photography developed. Decades later, an astonished local art curator came across Jang’s early work, leading to exhibitions and, now, a monograph. Ever-modest, Jang thinks his work is dated, but then wonders “Maybe they’ll be like Twinkies and will last forever”. More images are here.
