Picture present on Chinese language American lives held in New York Metropolis

NEW YORK, March 9 (Xinhua) — A photo exhibition documenting the lives of Chinese Americans is on view at the Museum of the City of New York.

The exhibition, titled “Interior lives: Contemporary photographs of Chinese New Yorkers,” features the works of three photographers who have spent years recording the lives of Chinese New Yorkers. The photographers are Thomas Holton, Annie Ling, and An Rong Xu.

Holton has followed the trajectory of a single family, the Lams of Ludlow Street, since 2003. Starting as a family of five in a 350-square-foot apartment, the family has changed over the past 15 years, with the growth of the children and the eventual separation of the parents.

Ling documented the lives of the 35 residents on the fourth floor of 81 Bowery while Xu explored the intersection of “two sometimes polarizing cultures” through photography.

Whitney Donhauser, Ronay Menschel Director and President of the Museum of the City of New York, said the exhibition provides an intimate look into a significant community full of vastly diverse experiences.

Prepared in conjunction with the Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) exhibition Interior Lives: Photographs of Chinese Americans in the 1980s by Bud Glick, the exhibition will run through March 24.
