Coming Soon to the Korea Society Gallery
Koreatown LA/NY
Photo Series by Emanuel Hahn/Janice Chung

Emanuel Hahn, Eden Foods, 2020

May 4 – August 17, 2023
Opening Reception: Thursday, May 4, 2023   5-7 PM ET

Two young Korean-American photographers present a series of images, a poignant portrait of a community and its habitants from the areas considered to be “Koreatown”—one in Los Angeles, one in New York. Emanuel Hahn and Janice Chung document the lives and stories in two of the most diverse neighborhoods in America, as the communities and neighborhoods themselves continue to evolve and change. It is a celebration of the Korean immigrants and their experiences, and the artists ask the viewer to reconsider the common notions of what it means to be from “here.”
