BIO : :


Hye-Ryoung Min is a South Korean photographer living and working in NYC. She received her MPS from School of Visual Arts in New York City. 

Her work explores the intersection between human relations and the inner self. Whether she is observing the mundane lives of strangers on the street; the comings and goings of her neighbors as seen through the windows of her home; the fleeting expressions of her niece; the evolving landscape of a city or the more than seventy diaries, which she has kept over the past twenty-six years, Hye-Ryoung continues to find in different subjects a reflection of her deeper self.

Among other shows, her work has been exhibited at: The Bronx Documentary Center; NEWSPACE Center for Photography; the Detroit Center for Contemporary Photography; The Center for Fine Art Photography; Griffin Museum of Photography; Photoville in US; Benaki Museum in Greece; Seoul Museum of Art; Sejong Art Center; Gallery Lux and Gallery Comma, in Seoul; GoEun Museum of Photography in Busan; Benaki Museum in Greece.

Her first monograph ‘Re-membrance of the Remembrance’ was published by Datz Press in 2018.

Her work has been exhibited at the following international photography festivals: Mt. ROKKO International Photography Festival in Japan; Kuala Lumpur International Photo Awards in Malaysia; Athens Photo Fest in Greece; TIPhF, Tirana International Photo Fest in France and Albania, and Photoville in Brooklyn NY.

She was an Artist in Residence at Woodstock Byrdcliffe in 2015 and at FotoVisura Lodge in 2014. 

She has been awarded Winner at Photolucida Critical Mass Top 50, En Foco’s New Works, Conscientious Portfolio Competition and Seoul Photo Festival Portfolio Award; Honorable Mention at the International Photography; the Rising Artist Award Finalist at the Seoul Museum of Art; Finalist at Kuala Lumpur International Photo Awards; Winner at TIPhF, Tirana International Photo Fest ; Semi-finalists at The Print Center Annual International Competition.
