Sujong Song is a Seoul-based curator and writer who is active in all aspects of photography, ranging from publication to exhibition and event planning. Until 2014, she had been on the steering committee for the Daegu Photo Biennale, and was the director of its portfolio review section. She is currently on the planning committee of Korea Photograher’s Fellowship hosted by Sangsang Madang, an influential cultural branch of KT&G. Song also has experience in broadcasting, having helped to create shows for the national broadcasting network, KBS, and the English-language Arirang TV.

Song served on the committees for the Angkor Photo Festival and the World Health Organization’s Stop TB Photo Award. She has organized and curated many exhibitions: the 2012 Mario Giacomelli exhibition at the Museum of Photography, Seoul; Five Views from Korea at the Noorderlicht Gallery in 2014; Two Moons at the GoEun Museum of Photography in 2015; and the Map of Daily Life at the Art Museum of Lishui in 2015, to name a few.

She has judged on panels for World Press Photo, POYi, and Flash Forward among many other photography awards and also nominates for several awards including Prix Pictet and Joop Swart Masterclass.

She is most interested in reviewing bodies of work with an individual and articulate point of view while tackling contemporary issues. She is not interested in commercial photography. Through portfolio reviews, Song intends to find artists to collaborate with in various exhibitions such Seoul Lunar Photo. She is also able to promote artists and their work for awards and/or workshop consideration along with opportunities for exhibitions. This review in particular will allow one artist to organize his or her solo exhibition at the BMW Photo Space of GoEun Museum of Photography located in Busan, Korea.
