Eyes on Atlanta:
Asian Contemporary Photography

Atlanta is a city rich in diverse culture. In 2022 APG launched a series of micro-exhibitions focused on the lens-based artists within the varied communities that make up our member base at APG. The lens-based exhibitions are curated and on view between our flagship exhibitions.

Jee Su Kim has curated our second 2024 micro-exhibition, Eyes on Atlanta: Asian Contemporary Photography,  May 28 –June 22, 2024. Opening Reception and Juror/Artist Talk is Thursday, June 6, 2024 from 6pm-8:30pm ET.

Jee Su Kim

Photo-Based Artist
Critical Mass 2023 Finalist
Assistant Curator and Artistic Operations Manager at APG

Jee Su Kim is a photo-based artist whose work goes beyond documenting literal representations by blending her subjective vision to create more emotionally evocative images through visual storytelling. 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. She recreates intimate narratives exploring themes of alienation, displacement, and cultural homelessness. Her work delves into the profound impact of our connections with our surroundings and people on the establishment of identity, culture, and a sense of belonging. From carefully staging her subjects in an ordinary background while retaining the authentic, documentary quality of her photographs, she seeks to capture the poetry in the mundane by blurring the lines between reality and illusion to create an intimate and emotional experience with the viewer. She is a graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), holding a BFA in Photography and a minor in Film/Television, and currently serves as the Assistant Curator and Artistic Operations Manager at the Atlanta Photography Group (APG) Gallery.
