Crossing the commercial photography and the picture work back and forth, Photographer Kim Yong Ho has been combining the images of his experience and memories to create a unique and surreal story steadily presenting and communicating through exhibitions with the public.

Rather than the ideological aesthetics of the photo that are expressed by some sort of forms or constraints, but as a breakthrough recorder more closer to the moment which is made at the boundary of sub-consciousness with a variety of gaze that penetrates the same period with freedom, Kim Yong Ho have been steadily planning for continuous and highly meaningful projects.

He, in each field of photography, broadcasting, culture, art, fashion and life styles has led the projects that caused the sympathy of the public with ‘extraordinary presence’ and ‘creativity’ and has been classified as an exceptional and challenging artist who has refocused the contemporary icon, business, culture, brand and cultural heritage. Through unexpected ideas, composition and inverse concepts he has changed the cultural trend of photos and commercials and since the exhibition of the ‘Mom’

at the Daelim Museum in 2008, he has been a major contributor in spreading the images of the domestic industry globally.

Through the art works, he has paid attention not only to the photographic images but also to the endless possibilities now available through visual media. Multi-media, which boundlessly crosses all over his exhibitions, occasionally serves as the visual text, which replaces the artist's notes or commentaries, It can also be defined as the fascinating detail, which mediates the traditional virtues of the photographs-punctum- and studium generale.Such features vividly reveal the characteristic of Kim Yong-ho’s art world, which cannot be labelled within one category. He instills vitality into the gap behind the still images.
