Artist Bio

Jungho Jung was born in Seoul in 1981. He completed his M.A. in fine art photography at Hongik University and in mass communication at Konkuk University, both in South Korea. He photographs different aspects of landscape and the ambiguous shapes of water, snow, and ice to explore how visual impressions bring about changes in human sensibility and thought. In his series White Utterance, he has tried to figure out “the true nature of white” by photographing in white landscapes covered with snow. He is a recipient of residencies at the Art Council of Korea’s Nomadic Residency Program in Iran in 2014 and at Bogong Centre for Sound Culture in Australia in 2015. Recent exhibitions showing his work include International Discoveries V (2015), FotoFest, Houston; Five Senses of Iran (2014) at the Iranian Academy of Arts, Iran; International Young Photographers (2012) at Bongsan Cultural Center, Daegu, South Korea; and Circulation (2011), Pingyao International Photography Festival, China. His works appeared in a solo exhibition at the Australian Centre for Photography (ACP), Paddington, NSW, in August 2015. He has won many awards including the National Geographic International Photo Award (2007) from National Geographic Korea; the Korean Air Photo Award (2008) from Korean Air Lines; the Magnum Korea Award (2007) from the Hankyoreh Media Company; the Art Preview and Portfolio Award (2012) from the Korea Art Education Promotion Association; and the New Discourse Artist Award (2013) from the Cyart Research Institute in South Korea.
