A holistic [həʊˈlɪstɪk;hɒˈl-] &

“A photograph is an unrealistic story using something that exists in reality that does not already have the value and objectivity of its own accord.”

The work of Kirsty Sim is dealing with aspects of reality and fantasy, which have had a profound impact on contemporary culture. She doesn’t think it is right to give directives or answers through her work. She hopes to prevent them from losing their humanity to this new mode of relating.

Kirsty Sim is a London based artist. Currently enrolled in MA Photography (fine art) at the Royal College of Art in London to further her understanding of the arts through exchange ideas and opinions with other artists on the course.

She has a BA degree in industrial design at Korean Polytechnic University. This meant she engaged with design work that mainly aligned itself with current trends and the requirements of the public. Since then, she has been working as a street fashion photographer with many Fashion and Art Magazines.
