IF YOU'VE ASKED YOURSELF HOW TO PRONOUNCE MY NAME:
THE NAME IS KOREAN. SUNG MEANS IMPLEMENTATION, HEE MEANS JOY.
NOMEN EST OMEN. I'M MADE IN GERMANY AND I LIVE WITH MY HUSBAND AND TWO CHILDREN IN MUNICH, GERMANY.
In 2011 she packed a backpack and traveled to Australia, South-East Asia and New Zealand on her own for adventures apart from the advertising photography world.
Returning to Germany, Munich was the new destination to live and work. She got married, became a mother and she also built up her career as a portrait photographer with her own studio in central Munich.
From questioning the advertising beauty photography and how a restricted female image is represented in media, Sung-Hee started her body of work FEMALE DIVERSITY in 2017 to show what a female body really looks like and to change our perception towards it.
Sung-Hee Seewald lives with her husband and two children in central Munich, Germany.
Sung-Hee Seewald was born in Frankfurt, Germany, 1979.
At the age of 14 she lived in Seoul, South Korea for more than a year, attending Sun-Hwa Art School.
After returning back to Germany, Sung-Hee graduated school (Abitur) in 1999 and bought her first SLR camera soon after.
From then she started a vocational training in 2001, assistant in photography in the field of advertising in Frankfurt. And continuing being a freelance photo assistant in the field of still life advertising photography.
From 2007, Sung-Hee started to work as a portrait and beauty photographer.
