Carrying, Caring (2022)

Hyejeong Yoo is a photographer currently living and working in Germany. In 2022, she received a Diploma with honours in photography from the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig. Yoo stages her figures within minimalist settings. Through the medium of photography, she delves into concepts such as the significance of “the other” and the interplay between birth and death. Integral to her meticulously crafted compositions are the gentle caress of natural light, the embrace of silence and the haunting emptiness reflected in the eyes of her protagonists.
