self portraits by Tseng Kwong Chi.

Today I had some time to kill while waiting for an annual NYS car inspection for the TT, so i walked over to a bookstore and saw a book of B&W photographs by Tseng Kwong Chi and was struck by their coolness.  These photos were taken in the 1980s and published in a series known as East Meets West.

To me, he comes across like a futuristic asian tourist-slash-government official investigator! brilliant.
