Biography

Joongho YUM depicts the marginal place that is usually overlooked, instead of the glittering facade and breathtakingly refined structure of the metropolis. In the unreached corners of the city, Yum uses his keen observation to microscopically scrutinize our lives for trivial things. But, he does not empathize with the objects in his pictures, and rather takes an indifferent stance in expressing them in his pictures. Everyday scenery that usually just pass us by become strange and doubtful subjects in his work. Yum majored in photography at Chung-Ang University and art theory et unversite aris VIII and now works in Seoul and Paris . Some of his solo exhibitions include, Joongho YUM .
