The Digital Screens Initiative presents work by two photographers, Jungim Kim and Tony Reddrop.
Jungim Kim - YOUL
This is a documentary about my daughter, the best gift of my life. I hope she will always grow up bright and good natured, as in this picture. I will do my best to help her along the way.
Jungim Kim is a documentary photographer and a professor of photojournalism at Sangmyung University in Korea. Her images have been exhibited in many other countries as well as in Korea and she also has participated in numerous group exhibitions.
The main theme of her work is people. In particular, Jungim has photographed a variety of people who have worked in one field for more than 20 years. From them she has learned more about life.
Jungim has taken a year off, and is been living in Auckland with her 6-year-old daughter. She has been documenting her daughter Youl’s life ever since she was born. This is the subject of the exhibition shown during the Auckland Festival of Photography.
Tony Reddrop - Random Street Portraits
Who are the people that make up Palmerston North? After a decade of living here, I started to ask, do I really know? How could I show the diverse mixture of people that live, are passing through, coming back to Palmerston North, after years of being away?
Over a period of twelve months, at Random, I would sit at the same location each weekend, depending on the weather, and ask people if I could take there Portrait. I was able to observe a diverse range of people, more diverse than I previously thought , but more importantly, listen to their stories.
