A high school drop-out, Pin is a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley, where he did Honors and was awarded the Louis and Charles Outstanding Honors Thesis Award, and the International Center of Photography. He received fellowships and grants from the Magnum Foundation and Open Society Foundations Photography Project, among others, has been featured in the New York Times, TIME Magazine, NPR, and VICE, and his series on the Cambodian diaspora is in the permanent collection of the Library of Congress.
