I accidently tuned in on a tv channel that was showing an american documentry with a number of american photographers.

I had time to watch a part with photographer Miru Kim and got a little fascinated with her work .. not because she poses naked (though I do admit it was a little distracting af first), but because of the way she uses herself naked to create some very interesting contrasts and put things into different perspective.

Some of the stuff she is doing seems risky - like climbing around old abandoned buildings, on rusty machines etc. Here is a series that was shown in the documentry:

the pigs series is grotesque

some of the city shots look awfully risky

Quite interesting - I'm glad I didn't have to be the model in the pig series...

There is actually a TED talk she did a while ago. Also very interesting. Nice body of work. [cough]

She makes genuinely moving work. Thanks for posting it.
