Hon Hoang was born in Vietnam and grew up in Los Angeles, California. Shortly after graduating from UCLA with a degree in Psychology, he pursued photography and directed several short films.
His experience in Psychology has continued into his photography and films because of his curiosity in people and cultures. He creates photographs to get a glimpse of humanity and pursues films as an exploration of it.
Hon believes that most of us feel a level of existential uncertainty, wondering who we’ll be because of who we were. His works explore this sensation and to eventually come to hopeful conclusions, acting as a sliver of light that guides out of the darkness.
Some of Hon’s previous works in include Calling, Taciturn Tango, and Fall With Me. With Calling having won Best Short film at ECAASU 2021 and the Audience Award at Viet Film Fest 2021.
He is currently working as a freelancer and on various photography projects such as EnFlight.Design and Asia Photo Review
EnFlight.Design is a web site devoted to the production, publication, and education in photography, design and cinema.
Asia Photo Review is a community to showcase the best photography being produced from Asia and Asian photographers around the world. Its goals are to promote honest reflection of these countries and the stories the inhabitants have to tell.
In between films, projects, and photoshoots, he tries to fill in gaps with moments in street photography. Walking around Los Angeles or wherever he might be traveling, trying to capture beautiful moments within what seems to be a gritty landscape.
