The news is now official: the Guggenheim Memorial Foundation has named Pipo Nguyen-Duy, Associate Professor of Art and Photography at Oberlin College, a 2011 fellow in creative arts.
The Guggenheim Foundation has recognized Pipo Nguyen-Duy for his body of work titled East of Eden: Vietnam, a series of staged, large-scale color photographs that explore hope and renewal 30 years after the Vietnam War. Please read more through Oberlin‘s official article and visit Pipo’s homepage to view work from East of Eden: Vietnam. (Also definitely check out the Pi(ng) Po(ng) project, which is my personal favorite of his works.)
Congratulations, Pipo! Oberlin is proud of you.
