Kim: A Tabloid Eye!
My name is Yong Kim.
I am a conceptual artist from Los Angeles.
I take sensationalistic photos around the world and place fake headline
titles underneath them.
My work reflects on how Hollywood (and films of directors such as JOHN
WATERS) has manipulated my perspective and transformed them into "A
TABLOID EYE" (title of the series).
So I got your shots of a black lady drinking COLT 45 at a Mardi-Gras Indians
celebration in New Orleans, greasers and leather Nazis in Tokyo, dwarves
dressed as Santa in India, etc. My eye seeks for the John Waters-esque.
BOY NUN IMPREGNATED BY DEMON SEED!
