By observing a KangHee Kim work – a Korean artist based in Brooklyn – one has the impression to look at a superficial snap, made by someone who does not pay too much attention to the form but just to one detail in the hope of making a good impression for the original nature of the subject.
But the first impressions can often be misleading because in reality, behind this fake amateur attitude, she hides a master knowledge of photography and a good reason to act like that.
The HangHee Kim shots playing with reality, the dirtiest one made of asphalt and construction waste.
Thanks to her great ally, the light, this Korean artist plays with these dreamy images through subtle manipulations, where skies with different shades are interwoven between the LA electricity wires.
An attempt to escape from the dark colors of the city towards another reality, an attempt to live through her shots.
