CreditsPraise for my first book Cosplay in America (2010)
"Cosplay in America is a gorgeous tribute to the people who attend anime conventions... the layout is slick and the photos are lovely. Chuang did what I hope more people will do in the future, portray cosplay as art"
"Ejen Chuang's photographs do what similar photo books weren't able to do : show cosplayers as real people who like to dress up as fictitious characters. Chuang treats his subjects with respect, and honors their passion for the anime, games and manga that inspired their costumes"
"Not just the most elaborately dressed or the sexiest, what you see is a cross section of costumed America ... each one is set in front of same black backdrop which lets you focus on the cosplayers and how much work they put into their costumes. Ejen's message is clear : they're the artist. He's just the photographer."
