Episode 3.12 – Jaime Permuth & Hye-Ryoung Min


In this episode, photographer couple Hye-Ryoung Min and Jaime Permuth join us for a wide ranging conversation about their brilliant projects, working together on editing and a bunch of great photobooks!

I met Jaime a few years ago when he invited me to give a talk at SVA, and knew of Hye-Ryoung’s work from when she won the Conscientious Portfolio prize. It was great to revisit their website’s and peruse through their projects and statements. I appreciate the way they edit their projects and present them on the web. It was great listening to them talk about their process which I think a lot of people will find interesting.

For the photobook segment, we discussed Berlin by Mitch Epstein, Come Again by Robert Frank, Rosalind Fox Solomon - THEM, Anders Peterson: Café Lehmitz and Josef Koudelka: Exiles.
