Starting in New York City and moving east around the planet, the exhibition CHINATOWNS is a compendium of over 1000 images taken by almost as many photographers. It is a visual tribute to the diversities and idiosyncrasies, as much as the similarities, that unite these urban communities scattered all over the world.
There are more than 300 Chinatowns around the world today. Many others have disappeared, and new ones are being born each year. Storefront for Art and Architecture, in association with Chinatown Film Festival New York, takes you on a global tour of the Chinatowns around the world.
