Sunik Kim(b.1986, South Korea) chose photography as a medium to be an artist and uses photography as a way he keeps questioning how to live today, and what to achieve with his own artistic practice.

He attempts to translate a trivial detail he faces on a day to day basis into his own photographic language and it represents the nuance of the space. His first monograph <ISOLATION>, published in 2019 describes the reality and contradictions of human society by depicting various groups of people staying in the cafe space. The image in which cynicism, tenderness, and tenaciousness coexist at the same time is a willingness to struggle with the ever-changing reality. He keeps focusing on the interaction of the city and human while empowering it with the lightest ingredients in the space.
