Koo Bohnchang

b. 1953, South Korea

Koo Bohnchang, born in Seoul in 1953, graduated from Yonsei University and studied photography at the Hamburg School of Art and Design. Leading the 'constructed photography' trend in the late 1980s, he has played a pivotal role in Korean photography, using myriad of photographic experiments to expand the realm of this art. His work can be seen as an ongoing meditation on the finiteness of existence and is presented with an acute sensitivity, often offering a minimalist oriental aesthetic.
