New York Chinatown
“Bud Glick’s photographs of the Chinese community in the 1980s poignantly capture what is usually taken for granted: the everyday moments at work, home, and on the streets that make up a community’s.” Herb Tam, The Museum of Chinese in America’s Curator and Director of Exhibitions.
This series reflects on how Manhattan’s Chinatown has changed, progressed, and evolved. For three years beginning in 1981, Bud Glick was commissioned by The Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) to photograph the street life, people, and domestic scenes of Chinatown. He earned the trust of Chinatown residents and gained access to interior lives during a pivotal time when new waves of immigrants from Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China began to converge into Chinatown, altering the demographic landscape of what was then home to earlier migrations and the largest ethnic Chinese population outside of Asia.
