susan nam (b. 1986) is a korean-american documentary photographer and activist 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. a photographer last, nam considers herself a fellow community member first, an artist that just uses the camera as one way of serving her community.

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 tri-state region. in 2016, nam was granted a temporary 18x40 foot mural through the philadelphia mural arts. presently, she works in partnership with the philadelphia museum of art as a teaching artist to teach photography to the inner city youth.

nam's sole purpose & driving force behind every image is the hope, joy, peace, faith and love that is not of this world, but only found through Jesus Christ. nam currently resides in the uptown neighborhood of philly with her husband & three children.
