Yunho Kim

South Korea

Yunho Kim is convinced that photography is the most critical means of recording and representing our lives as well as social and cultural phenomena. Although his work is a mere cry from that of an auteur and has no influence on the environment of our lives, Kim proposes that his work be considered a critical viewpoint and momentum in that it makes viewers investigate our surroundings and culture. For this purpose, he relies on the method of typological documentary – one of the most significant methods in contemporary photography – as well as photography’s inherent ability of recording. In Kim’s opinion, typological documentation as initiated in German photography is a tool of social critique, satisfying both the need to document and the artistic purpose of photography.
