Chien-Chi Chang’s Jet Lag

Jet Lag cover

 

The °CLAIR Gallery is proud to announce that Chien-Chi Chang’s glorious series of photographs Jet Lag will be released in September 2015 by the German publisher Hatje Cantz.

“Wanderlust becomes rootlessness,” notes the publisher. “For those who travel a lot, the world becomes a steel-and-concrete construct of interchangeable flight crews, hotel rooms, and check-in counters … In these photographs, reality is less a touchstone than a distraction: the crucial space is ‘between’.”

Jet Lag can be pre-ordered through the Hatje Cantz website.

More about Chien-Chi Chang on the gallery’s artist page.
