Empty OrchestraEve Arnold, Personalities
Empty Orchestra
by Chien-Chi Chang

One night and one roll of film. Chien-Chi Chang's photographs of "a night in a karaoke bar" explore a different scene from that which we are used to in western-world karaoke establishments.
He evocatively captures the other side of karaoke culture in which divorced or married Vietnamese women entertain Taiwanese men, portraying what some suggest is a new "concubine phenomenon" emerging from Karaoke culture in certain parts of Asia.

Eve Arnold, Personalities
by Eve Arnold

"What I have tried to do is involve the people I was photographing. To have them realize without saying so, that it was up to them to give me whatever they wanted to give me ... if they were willing to give, I was willing to photograph."
- Eve Arnold

The photograph is completely abstracted from life, yet it looks like life. That is what has always excited me about photography.
