University of Minnesota Department of Art & Katherine E. Nash Gallery says
Pipo Nguyen-Duy’s photography stems from the traditional style of landscape painting. His work illustrates the psychological fallout experienced in the United States since September 2001, and it is to that end that he relies on the tradition of landscape painting to photographically imagine the fall of man. Pipo’s reliance on the natural world as a theatrical apparatus uncovers collisions between nature and culture, past and present, in carefully crystallized visions that inscribe themselves onto classical western visions of the (un)natural world. Mythological reference and choreographed staging serve structurally and thematically to infuse these imagined landscapes with an eerie sense of art-historical déjà vu. --Jennie Hirsh.

Pipo Nguyen-Duy was born in Hue, Vietnam, immigrated to the United States as a political refugee, and is a professor of photography at Oberlin College. He has received many awards and grants including a Guggenheim Fellowship, a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, an En Foco Grant, a Professional Development Grant from the College Arts Association, and an American Photography Institute National Graduate Fellowship, among others. He has lectured and exhibited throughout the United States.
