susan nam (b. 1986) is a korean-american documentary & street photographer from philadelphia. for the past 10 years, nam's work has been dedicated to the city of philadelphia and its focus on community- not only documenting it, but more importantly being part of it. she does not consider herself much of a photographer, but more so an artist and community member that happens to use the camera as a way to build bridges.

upon graduating in 2010 from the art institute of philadelphia with the outstanding achievement award for her class, she has since been featured in various exhibitions throughout the tristate region.

nam's sole purpose & driving force in choosing to always see the hope in humanity is a direct reflection of the undeniable light that Christ has shed in nam's own life. nam currently resides in the uptown neighborhood of philly with her husband & three children.
