Jooeun Bae is a collage-photographer. She was born in South Korea. At the age of 15, she moved to the United States independently to study for a decade. There were many new cultures for her, but they melted into her without a sense of difference. Therefore, she was able to form a sense of herself that harmonized Korean, her human nature, and the American culture. As her process of growth, she was fascinated with the idea of making one by mixing different elements. Thus, collage is an essential method that allows her to put her imaginations together. For the reasons, she has chosen to be a collage-photographer, among many other specialties in photography.
Jooeun Bae is a graduate of International Center of Photography in Manhattan, New York. After the graduate show at ICP, she was invited by SFA Projects to exhibit her works in NYC, and her works were featured in Musee Magazine in Issue 22.
