About Minim Photographic Studio
Based in Taipei, Minim Photographic Studio is a collaboration between two analogue camera enthusiasts, Min and Nim. Together they aim to bring clients no gimmicks, minimalistic, classic photography with minimal fuss.
Both photographers specialise in capturing images with traditional cameras, and are passionate about the slow process and timeless aesthetic that analogue photography produces. Both photographers are also professionally trained in using digital cameras, so if you prefer digital images please don't hesitate to ask.
Min is aiming to understand the world, humans and who he is. He is inspired by everything around him, always curious and waiting for the moment to tell a story. His fine art practice is diverse, combining his passion for photography, poetry, and Chinese calligraphy. He has had photography and calligraphy exhibitions in Seoul, South Korea. He has also been teaching analogue photography for many years, holding international classes, with his students coming from all over the world. He is fascinated by the mechanical and technical side of photography, always testing new cameras trying to understand how different products work. In addition he loves the film development process and develops his own black and white film in Minim's darkroom. Min speaks English and Korean.
Nim has a first class BA degree in Photography. She is a Magnum Competition winner and has produced images for clients such as The Guardian, Foreign Policy, CNN, Mediapart, and worked with NGO’s such as Migrant Children’s Foundation, Yangtze River Children and Procreate Project. She has been teaching photography in the UK, China and Taiwan for the last five years, from introducing beginners to the practice of photography through to helping students prepare their portfolio for university applications. Her personal work takes a social documentary approach. Her interest in visual anthropology fuels her curiosity in the human being and the way contemporary society impacts on how they position themselves within an environment. Various personal projects of Nim's have been exhibited in China and in the UK. Nim speaks English and a little Mandarin Chinese.
