This work, now being gradually unveiled through Jang’s first-ever Instagram account, uncovers moments of playful hedonism, private exchanges between lovers and dancers, and images of artists coming into their own. His series serves as a send-up to the period in life in which our identity stumbles, interests sharpen, the beer always flows, and fun seems bottomless: college. Some notable faces like Michael Richards, Ravi Shankar, and David Hasselhoff filter in between shots of nude and drunken nights, campus wanderings, and students recording passionately in the classroom.
