Dorothy Hong

Biography

Born in 1983 in New York and raised on a very long island off the coast of Manhattan.
She attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City and graduated with a BFA in 2005. In 2007 she was chosen as one of PDN’s 30 Emerging Photographers to watch. She has worked with Giant Magazine and Newsweek, Nike and Sony have been her customers.
Often her photography shows a mixture of historical-artistic influences, like for example the typically American crop and the use of light so dear to the painters of the Italian Renaissance. This peculiarity enhances the expression of her subjects: glances, postures, places, all accentuating the emotions that drive the young generations of today.
