In A Floating Population, photographer Annie Ling uses her camera as an entry point to establish a deep connection with the people and spaces of Chinatown. Ling, who photographs for the New York Times, rejects the stereotypes and surface impressions that characterize so many images of the neighborhood. She spends time with those she photographs - immigrants and the elderly - both alone and with their families, photographing them with intimacy and complexity. MOCA will be presenting four bodies of her work: “81 Bowery” (selections of which were published in the New York Times), “Shut-Ins”, “Tenements”, and "A Floating Population."
