Amos Chan –Behind Union City


When I photographed the making of the film Union City, it was the start of my career as a commercial photographer, after 10 years of struggling as a fine art photographer and teacher. Among my students were Nan Goldin and Philip-Lorca diCorcia, both of whom became friends. The era of “concern” photography was coming to an end. Marcus Reichert gave me total freedom on the set of his film. I could take as many pictures as I wanted just as long as I didn’t interfere with the filming ─ what joy! If this hadn’t been an indie film I wouldn’t have been allowed on the set ─ I wasn’t a union photographer.
