Magnum Photos and Aperture have joined forces for the second time to present ‘Crossings’. This fall’s Square Print Sale explores perspectives on transition and transformation in photography by over 120 leading photographic artists. “Humans need to hold hope in their hands. This man was willing to live in poverty in hope of prosperity, to sacrifice his immediate happiness to realize the dream of giving his children a better life. It has been exactly two decades since I took this photo in New York’s Chinatown as part of an ongoing project about immigrants. A few years later, this man was able to bring his family to New York, and today they are living the American dream. He is now a grandfather! But is economic prosperity worth the social cost? Perhaps the answers to such questions can be found in the lives of the people left behind in China and in those of the second and third generations who are growing up in the United States.

I have been working in New York’s Chinatown since 1992—for more than 26 years—and it is still a project in progress. Immigration is often propelled by suffering. To witness the shifting patterns of populations is to see the world in all its exigencies—war, natural disasters, repression, famine, poverty and persecution. But there is a rainbow at the bottom of that Pandora’s box of troubles; hope, too, propels immigrants to settle in strange lands. I should know: I am one myself. #MagnumPhotos #cccontheroad

Fuzhou, China. 2005. To contrast the bleak, black-and-white lives of the Chinese immigrants in New York. I chose to photograph the families in China in color. Living lives devoid of husbands, fathers or brothers, uncertain of their future, women resign themselves to waiting, the unpredictability of a reunion tearing at the fabric of both the family and their community. #MagnumPhotos #cccontheroad

RepostBy @natgeo: "Video by @chien_chi_chang | In late August 2017, violence erupted in Rakhine State in Myanmar (Burma), targeting the Rohingya people, a stateless Muslim minority who have lived in Myanmar for generations. More than half a million people fled to Bangladesh, triggering one of the fastest growing humanitarian crises in the world. An estimated 700,000 Rohingya have been driven into Bangladesh (as of April 2018). Over half of them are children. The Bangladesh government has called for Myanmar to take back the refugees.

Sadece Çinli göçmenler değil tüm göçmenler için sorulması ve göç etmeden önce iyi anlaşılması gereken bir konu. Çocuklar için iyi bir gelecek için göç edilirken genelde ekonomik kalkınma herkesin gönlünden geçen... Ama bunun için hayatin sosyal anlamindan vazgeçmeye değer mi? Mesela bayramlar aynı değil, anneanneler ve dedeler çocukların yanında değil, arkadaşlıklar, değerler ve kültürler farklı... #Repost @natgeo • • • • • Photo by @chien_chi_chang | New York's Chinatown: The compelling quality of this long-term project is its universality. It is about the essential human need to hold hope in your hands and about having the willingness to sacrifice one’s own immediate happiness to realize the dream of giving children a "better" life. But is economic prosperity worth the social cost? Perhaps the answers to such questions we all ponder can be found in the lives of the people left behind in China and in those of the second- and third-generation immigrants growing up in the United States. Look at them, and listen to their voices. You may not understand their language, but you can feel their longing. #MagnumPhotos #cccontheroad

Rain or shine, each spring in Taiwan, followers of Taoist saint Matsu make a pilgrimage to commemorate her birthday (she would have been 1062 this year). The procession creeps along from temple to temple on a seven day, 280 kilometer journey through central Taiwan. Upon reaching their destination, performers wearing lion masks dance and dance in front of the temple. This image will be in an upcoming exhibition, please stay tuned for the detailed info.

Photo by @chien_chi_chang | I have been working in New York’s Chinatown since 1992—for more than 26 years—and it is still a project in progress. I have followed and photographed twenty families in Chinatown, and those relationships are now culminating in a tri-generational drama. The people in these pictures were all willing to sacrifice their immediate comfort to realize the dream of giving their children a ""better"" life. Some of that first wave of immigrants have now returned to China to enjoy the rest of their lives in prosperity, with family members they have not seen for decades. Others are trying to live the American dream. #MagnumPhotos #cccontheroad Like if you absolutely concur that this post was great

Immigration is often propelled by suffering. To witness the shifting patterns of populations is to see the world in all its exigencies—war, natural disasters, repression, famine, poverty and persecution. But there is a rainbow at the bottom of that Pandora’s box of troubles; hope, too, propels immigrants to settle in strange lands. I should know: I am one myself.

To hope that I could do what had never been done before—to make these invisible families, with their sufferings and triumphs, at last, visible. #MagnumPhotos #cccontheroad

#Repost @natgeo ( @get_repost) ・・・ Photo by @chien_chi_chang | In late August 2017, violence erupted in Rakhine State in Myanmar (Burma), targeting the Rohingya people, a stateless Muslim minority who have lived in Myanmar for generations. More than half a million people fled to Bangladesh, triggering one of the fastest growing humanitarian crises in the world. An estimated 700,000 Rohingya have been driven into Bangladesh (as of April 2018). Over half of them are children. The Bangladesh government has called for Myanmar to take back the refugees. There is no telling when or if that will happen soon. #MagnumPhotos #cccontheroad
