Angelina Hong is a food and food events photographer based in the Bay Area. Originally from Minnesota, she came out to the Bay Area where she graduated from Stanford University with a BA in Human Biology. Several years out of college, she quickly realized that her heart and passion were in photography.
Angelina Hong is a bi-ethnic (Hmong & Korean), queer, woman. She is a daughter of an immigrant father and a refugee mother; and these identities not only influence her work, but they affect she sees and interacts with the world. Growing up with a variety of cuisines influenced by a number of cultures allowed her to respect food, land, and animals.
She views food as nourishment for the body, mind, and soul. Food is a source of power and of life, and it stands at the intersections of nearly everything our life touches. Accessibility, nutrition, money, immigration… thus, it can be used as a tool to forge strong connections and build bridges between uncommon denominators. Through Angelina’s photography, she capitalizes on this point of connection to become a storyteller; ensuring that a shared vision is well represented.
