Sun Choi finds her voice as a photographer in her series ‘reveal the truth’

Meet the 24-year-old photographer walking the line between fashion and fine art

September 9, 2019

Sun Choi is a 24-year-old photographer hailing from Korea, and working between Seoul and New York. With a number of publications under her belt including Sicky, Teeth, Cake and Contributor, she’s a creative force to be reckoned with.

Shooting predominantly on 35mm film, Sun Choi’s work expertly walks the line between fashion and fine art. Her latest series ‘Reveal the Truth’ came after a spell of depression, in which she “couldn't stop comparing myself or my work to others.” After deciding to “keep being true to everything I am”, Sun broke out of her rut, and is determined to “keep reaching, keep creating and keep being myself.”

Inspired by the late Peter Lindbergh, Sun lives by his philosophy that “photography gives you the opportunity to use your sensibility and everything you are to say something about and be part of the world around you. In this way, you might discover who you are, and with a little luck, you might discover something much larger than yourself.”

Check out her stunning new series below.
