The Seoul, Korea born & Brooklyn, New York City based artist & photographer KangHee Kim, who creates scenes that peek into an alternate world, subtly placing faux reflections in coils of cable or in the streak of a rear windshield.
Kim‘s manipulations come from the desire to manifest magical moments in the mundane, using post-production edits as an additional artistic medium within her work. Using Photoshop to collage together the photos she takes daily while running errands around New York City, mundane street scenes become utopian miracles.
Kanghee decided that she wanted to do the opposite with the tool, keeping the flaws that appeared in her images rather than editing them out. Here are some of the mesmerizing photography by KangHee Kim. You can view more of the photographer’s softly edited images and unexpected reflections on her website and Instagram.
