Seunggu Kim lives and works in Seoul, South Korea. He earned his MFA in visual art from Korea National University of Arts. He would like to describe how we are living. He thought photography could show our ‘real world’. He wanted to balance the unnatural elements in the rectangle frame and describe that we are getting used to the social ironies of reality.
