I am a photographer and artist, living in Long Island City, New York. I was born in Busan, Korea. My hearing became profoundly impaired at an age of two, so I began taking drawing and painting lessons. After graduating from high school in Korea, I came to the New York City to study fine art at the School of Visual Arts, but changed my major to photography. Afterwards, while working as a commercial photographer, I continued refining my artistic vision and developing my own works.
