Jeongin Kim is a photographer whose work focuses on relationships and communication between living beings. She first explored commercial photography and graphic design fields for four years since receiving a degree in visual communication design. Following that, she began a career at Datz Press, a publishing house based in Seoul, South Korea. There, Kim devoted six years to publishing art books, where she enhanced her focus and keen interest in fine art photography. With all that accumulated knowledge and strong aspirations, she held her first solo show in April 2018, which was accompanied by a photobook featuring the exhibited work spanning five years. Kim currently resides and works in Seoul, South Korea.
