Photographer John Clang, also known as Ang Choon Leng, produces work with a strong autobiographical undertone, frequently around themes of loss and urban alienation. His subjects are most often his friends, family, and his immediate surroundings, his style most identifiable for its blurring or erasing of faces and figures. Clang’s series “Erasure” (2011) and “Remembering Strangers” (2010) are comprised of portraits in which the subject has been erased or cut away from the print; he also uses slicing and collage to articulate the passage of time in his photographs. In “Time” (2009), for example, Clang cut up multiple photographs of strangers taken at a single location in New York to create composite images populated with a fictitious density of people.
