About the Artist
David Kim is a photographer currently based in Seoul, South Korea. Formerly a strategy consultant in the U.S., David began his photograph journey during his last semester at university, seeking a creative outlet from his finance coursework. When not on assignment, he can often be found roaming the cityscape with his trusty Leica and a cup of coffee.
Specializing in fine art street and portrait photography, Davidseeks to document life's decisive moments and capture thebeauty from the everyday ordinary. His work can be found in various editorial publications and select images are available for license from Getty Images.
Society of the Individual is an exhibition exploring the relationship between the idea of the group and the idea of the individual. Inspired by Henry David Thoreau's quote, "City life is millions of people being lonesome together," the artist strives to delve deeper into this paradoxical relationship in the cityscape of Seoul, South Korea. With a strong social cultural identity and a rising trend of individuality, Seoul presented itself as a unique cityscape from which the connection between the group and the individual could be explored photographically.
