Jinyoung Koh was born in Boryeong, Korea, and lives and works in both Seoul and New York City. He received a BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago and a MFA in photography and media from the California Institute of the Arts. He is currently enrolled in the graduate program in Arts and Humanities at Columbia University in New York.
Koh’s focus is landscape photography. Here, he examines with a fine lens the effects of human presence on what he calls “the surfaces of our society.” He has further stated that he “wants to explore human interaction as the common thread that connects us all.”
The response to the competition each year has been exciting and brought many talented photographers’ work to the attention of the Museum’s curatorial staff. With the competition, we have added work of twelve very talented arts both experienced and emerging. Limited edition prints of this photograph are available at a cost of $600.
