Chuck Fong's Photography

Boy with Rabbit in black and white by Chuck Fong

After Arbus

Chuck Fong’s intimate photographs of small town America debut this month at Schlow.

Local artist Fong is best known for his evocative portraits and in this exhibit, presents the tenacity and dignity of the disenfranchised and those living on the outskirts.   Whether the work is in cool black-and-white, or striking color, the photographs on display best exemplify Fong’s search for individual stories. A follower of the late master photographer, Diane Arbus, Fong worked to capture his subjects in a similar style.  Arbus, who is best known for her photographs of marginalized people as she wandered the streets of New York City, earned a Guggenheim Fellowship following a successful (if unsatisfying) career in commercial photography. Struggling with mental illness, she took her own life in 1971.

The Betsy Rodgers Allen Gallery is pleased to present this selection throughout October. Interested in purchasing a piece? Contact Chuck Fong at Studio 2, (814) 234.2000
