These Taiwanese wedding pictures are not the celebratory nuptial norm that are the bread and butter of photographers everywhere.
Rather, Chien-Chi Chang reveals a jaundiced look at the institution and the industry of marriage. A couple is caught in a net of spray-string confetti; a bride poses among ruin; a chain of wedding couples kisses in a zoo with caged elephants behind them; and a post-nuptial couple, in all their Western finery, sleep soundly, and separately, in the back of a limousine.
I do, I do, I do reveals conflicts that the artist, at the time a 41-year-old unwed man with three younger sisters and no brothers, felt about the notion of marriage and all the traditional family pressures that it entails.
Signed by Chien-Chi Chang
