Dot, Crack, Bam and that familiar clicking sound of mahjong tiles has fostered distinct social cultures in the United States. As the game made its way from China to the US, it caught on in a wide variety of settings and a range of socioeconomic groups. Annelise Heinz utilizes photographs, advertisements and the rich history of the beloved game that’s connected individuals and communities.
