Miru Kim is a young artist from New York City. She photographed many abandoned urban landscapes such as subway stations, tunnels, aqueducts, factories, hospitals, and shipyards. Kim ventures into places where most of us would not dare enter. In her first photographic series, Naked City Spleen, Kim has portrayed herself in these urban places forgotten by society. For the new series, The Pig That Therefore I Am, the artist has explored various industrial pig farms, posing in the midst of thousands of pigs awaiting slaughter.
