Co-Chair, Department of Art and Art History
Associate Professor of Art
Young Suh received his BFA in Photography from the Pratt Institute, Brooklyn in 1998, and went on to receive his MFA in Studio Art from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, where he taught large format photography and digital printing. His photographic work often deals with the complicated nature of human involvement in managing natural resources and the shifting concepts of nature in contemporary society. Over the last 10 years he has completed two major projects, “Instant Traveler” and “Wildfires.” He is currently working on his new project, “Let Burn,” a photo and video series on controlled fires.
Suh’s work is included in several public and corporate collections, and he has had solo exhibitions in the U.S. and in Korea. His work has also appeared in numerous group exhibitions throughout the country, notable among them: “The Collector’s Guide to New Art Photography” at Chelsea Art Museum (New York) and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and the Center for Contemporary Art in Sacramento.
