Robert Klein Gallery is pleased to announce its representation of the Estate of JOHN YANG. Using traditional view cameras and alternative darkroom techniques, Yang produced exquisite large-format platinum/palladium contact prints. A dedicated technician, Yang was committed to exploring the subtle tonal variations of this painstaking process. Born in China and raised in New York City, Yang photographed the architecture and streets of New York, as well as the landscapes and gardens throughout New York state.

Yang's work is in the permanent collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Smithsonian American Art Museum, The Museum of Modern Art, The New York Public Library, The High Museum, Atlanta, and the Chasanoff Collection at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

Platinum/palladium prints will be available to view at the upcoming 2017 AIPAD PHOTOGRAPHY SHOW. Visit Robert Klein Gallery in booth #515 to see these exquisite prints.

John Yang, Photographer; A great loss to the photographic community

After some years of illness, John Yang has died of cancer at 76 at his Manhattan home in New York. Educated as an architect and being successful in that field, his childhood dream however was to be a photographer. He relentlessly persued that craft with 35mm to 11x14 view cameras. With his architectural precision, he excelled from darkroom to a finished , mounted & framed print. Thru his life he remained a freelance photographer and left us landscape and nature images of memorable quality and impression. Besides his work being presented in various museums and private collections, John had 2 exhibits at my Underground Gallery and I am fortunate to own some of his prints. I will never forget his calm, unpretentious and generous character. He will always have a special place in my heart and thru his images he is still with us.
