About the artist: Michael Jang (b. 1951) moved to San Francisco in the 70s to earn a MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. While earning a living through commercial photography, Jang was also busy documenting the sub-cultures and intimate social circles around him, immersing himself in the city's lively punk scene. He is a pioneer in the storytelling of the Asian American experience in California in both cultural and personal senses. In addition to his joyful or joking portraits, his documentary-style photography offers an honest view of quintessentially Californian moments, like the huddled mass gathered on the Golden Gate Bridge for its 50th anniversary, or Sex Pistol concerts and David Bowie sightings.
