Han Nguyen | American b. Vietnam, 1956 -

Han Nguyen moved to United States from Vietnam in 1975. Settling in California, he first discovered his love for creating images with a camera and the processes of photography.

Nguyen’s delicate and transformative imagery investigates beauty, perception, and the medium itself through modest working methods that employ pinhole cameras, fabricated studio arrangements, photogram image-making processes, and subtle color toning and print masking procedures.

His photographs have been exhibited in numerous solo and traveling group exhibitions, most notably Picturing Eden organized by the George Eastman House, and Beyond Boundaries: Contemporary Photography in California, organized by the Friends of Photography.
