"Mexico City: Hope and Despair" series is about Im's objective observation when he visited the city. He tries to show the positive and negative atmosphere of the city.

Ray Im is a Korean-born, American, lens-based artist and ceramicist. His practice basically focuses on the contextualization of traditional languages inherent in ceramics and photography to discover a contemporary material conversation between the two, but from his pure photography side constantly pursues documenting the world through the viewfinder he seeks. "Mexico City" series is about his objective observation when he visited the city.
