Jee Su Kim is a photo-based visual storyteller whose works go beyond documenting literal representations by blending her subjective vision to create more emotionally evocative images through symbolic and abstract imagery.

Growing up in a multicultural background, she was constantly challenged with finding a sense of belonging, enabling her to channel isolation and otherness into a source of empowerment that is rooted in the idea of displacement. She does so by giving agency to her photographed subjects, and at times herself, who are carefully staged in an ordinary background to convey a certain story or emotion while preserving the documentary elements of her photographs. She seeks to highlight the mundane by blurring the lines between reality and illusion to create an intimate and emotional experience with the viewer by allowing them to interact with the subjects photographed.

As a graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), holding a BFA in Photography and a minor in Film/Television, she is currently serving as the Artistic Operations Manager at the Atlanta Photography Group (APG) Gallery. With the passion for photography and fine art overall, she aspires to learn more in depth about gallery spaces, curation and how to shape and execute artistic projects as a fine art photographer herself.
