Torn Photograph Collages Show Life In New York

Several photos torn into strips then put back together-that's the basic concept behind this photography series by John Clang, but the end result is so much more than just a bunch of torn pictures.

These are snapshots of life in New York taken at all the prime spots, like the Brooklyn Bridge, Chinatown, Times Square and Wall Street, and they reveal how the lives of people from all walks of life intersect in the same place on a daily basis.

Here's what John has to say about this series-

Working on this series, I explore how time moves in this seemingly static urban space. The people become the moving energy flowing through this space, marking the changes, forming the time.

These images also explore my fascination that there are probably many time dimensions in this universe. We may have a ‘life’ that exists similarly on a different path, one minute before or after the one we’re living now. We merely just exist in this current dimension, and sometimes when time paths collide, we have déjà vu experience.

This series brings new meaning to the phrase "a slice of life", except there's nothing mundane about the way John Clang has chosen to present the lives of these New Yorkers.
