Detroit Center for Contemporary Photography : : THE FAMILY EXHIBITION

Added on by Hye-Ryoung Min.

The image of my niece, Yeonsoo has been accepted into the show, Family at Detroit Center for Contemporary Photography juried by Aline Smithson from Lenscratch!

January 12th and will run through February 2, 2013.

Opening reception 6:30 pm -9:30 pm

"The Photographic Dialogue has never been so filled conversation about family--interpreting ourselves and those we love through images is an important way of creating universal stories. Photographers today have become participant observers of their own familial settings, reflecting a reality and insight of those they share their lives with. We are turning our lenses homeward, to capture worlds that are familiar, yet charged with history and emotion. This exhibition is about seeing beyond the front door and the birthday party smiles, it's about the pathos and poignancy of parenthood, of aging parents, of loss, of joy, of's about all the things that make us human in the every day drama played out in our own backyards."

Conscientious Portfolio Competition 2012 : : Channel 247

Added on by Hye-Ryoung Min.

Conscientious Portfolio Competition 2012

I was awarded of this year's "Conscientious Portfolio Competition", one of the most important competitions in online photography organized by Jeorg Colberg.



It is time to reveal the winners of the Conscientious Portfolio Competition 2012. This year, the jury consisted of Michel Mallard (creative director/founder, Michel Mallard Studio), Robert Lyons (photographer; director, Hartford Photography MFA Program), and myself. Without further ado, the winners are…

Robert picked Hye-Ryoung Min’s Channel 247 (see top image):

I first got it down to five different portfolios. But I kept coming back to Hye-Ryoung Min’s, whose work struck me the first time I looked at it, and it has only grown since. The images really suggest time beyond the moment of the picture. They are well composed, and each image suggests an interesting situation. The formal aspects seem to hold the group together. Although at first one feels as if these are “surveillance” images - at least by the framing, and by things that obscure the images - one quickly is able to see how they are much more.
