Multifaceted: Photos by Ahn Sun Mi

Surreal self-portraits by Korean photographer Ahn Sun Mi exploring altered states of consciousness. Sun Mi sees her work as a space for transition where time stands still—a space between childhood and adulthood, dream and reality. With the goal of establishing a career in fashion photography, she moved to France and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts. Her time in France became a turning point after experiencing isolation in a new country and she turned to photography to investigate her identity and the distance between her inner self and appearance.

I wanted to understand myself, but at the same time I didn’t want to escape reality. I felt like a child inside but who acted like a grown up.

On view at Catherine Ahnell Gallery May 14 – June 14.
