Nuevo paisaje urbano
Born in Taipei, Taiwan, in 1977. Amy Chang moved to Houston (USA) at the age of one and there she lived until graduating in the university. Then she lived in San Francisco, Paris and, since 2003, in Madrid. She got a degree on Sociology; she completed postgraduate studies in Politics and Photojournalism and continued her photography studies in Paris and Madrid.
During the last two decades, the growing immigrant communities have changed Spain’s face, its people’s and its cities’. In these cities new businesses have been created by the immigrant community. Many of these businesses have for her an irresistible visual appeal. Countless products are gathered in perfect order and generate unique geometries and colour combinations. These shops give us clues to understand their owners: through the items sold, the meticulousness of their organization or the decoration chosen for their premises.
