Born in Pusan, 1974
Visual artist and photographer

I photograph, film or describe in commission, on my own initiative or in community art connection. Besides photographer I am a person who organizes, mediates and creates conditions where art comes into its own and fascinates people. I am a director of unexpected encounters and interested in new thoughts and ideas that arise when people enter into a dialogue.

Transformations - and encounters with - others, are a source of inspiration. Because I was adopted I developed a unique view at the world. I always looked at my own identity in relation with others and my environment. And I discovered that adoption had a strong influence on my sense of home. My work consists of several studies on this matter.
