Photographer Ki Ho Park


Ki Ho Park moved to the United States as a child and studied photography at the Rhode Island School of Design, graduating in 1986. After returning to Korea in 1987, he worked for various international magazines, including Time, Business Week, Fortune, and Forbes, and operated a very successful commercial photography business. In 2007, he had his first private exhibition called “Photography & Texture” which combined large photographic prints with three dimensional objects. After his one-man show, he went back to RISD to earn his master’s degree. His thesis project “Everything Must Go”, a documentation of empty storefronts across the U.S. during the 2008 financial crisis, was exhibited in New York and in Boston.  After returning to Seoul, with his newly heightened sensibilities for the symbols of economic distress across America, he began documenting deserted old towns slated for demolition to make high rise dwellings, in the name of economic development. This project was exhibited in Atelier Maison, in Richelieu, France under the title, “What We Left Behind ” in 2016. In 2018, his solo exhibition “Silent Boundaries” was held at The Museum of Photography, Seoul, Korea, and then traveled to the Three Shadows Photography Art Center, Beijing and the Jimei x Aries International Photo Festival in Xiamen, China.Currently, he teaches at Yonsei University Songdo International Campus and Graduate School.
