Jeong Hur is an artist born in Seoul, South Korea working in lens-based media in New York. He majored in BFA graphic design at Kookmin University in Korea, and MFA photography at SVA in New York. He started his art career with graphic design and media art, but after becoming skeptical about the fictional character of digital media, shifted into working with hand-crafted works, such as analog photography. Film photography is a physical medium he finds more satisfying and believes can achieve what digital media cannot. In this respect, Jeong was influenced by artists who use photographic film itself as the physical medium. Starting with a solo exhibition in Korea in 2015, he has continued exhibiting his works in New York and South Korea.
