Hien Hoang was born in Vietnam and lives currently in Hamburg, Germany. Hien is particularly interested in social cliche/prejudices and the relationship between the collective standards and the individual needs and perception. This can be seen in her photo project “Under the pants”, in which she photographs strangers at their homes and in underwear. She is currently studying photography at the HAW Hamburg and is continuing to work on other projects.
