Top photographer KimJungman (KJM) has released a large number of his photographic works through NFT.


KimJungman(KJM) won the Young Artist Award at the Arles International Photography Festival in France in 1977, and was selected as the youngest artist in France's '80 Artists of the Day' at the age of 23. Recognized in France, which leads fashion early, he has worked on various projects with famous foreign magazines such as Vogue, ELLE, and BAZAAR.


He has worked with over 1,000 stars, including Jeon Do-yeon, Rain, Won Bin, Jung Woo-sung, Bae Yong-jun, Lee Byung-hun, Ko So-young, Kang Su-yeon, Kim Jong-un, and Son Ye-jin, as well as movie posters for the films Monster, Tazza, and Sweet Life. He took pictures in various fields such as  fashion and advertising.


He currently serves as the head of Studio Velvet Underground and editor of NEOLOOK, after declaring he would not take commercial photography since 2006, he has been photographing to express the artist's deep inner world or to support the underprivileged .


On the other hand, artist KimJungman  said, “With the advent of high-resolution pixel mobile phones, photography no longer belongs to the artist alone. Anyone with a mobile phone can easily access photos, and photos have become an object of consumption or a part of the play culture of young people. I see photograph as a young peoples’ culture where it is instant and used in a very short moment, it is a cycle that repeats itself, and there is nothing wrong with this instant usage of photo. I also hope that my photography will become a genre of art that can be easily accessed by many people. That's why we're releasing low-cost, mass-edition works that can be easily purchased by the public from very expensive works," said the purpose of this NFT issuance.


KimJungman's photographic NFTs will be showcased on TriumphX's two major NFT platforms, ENFTEE and Sole-X, and can be paid with Ethereum (ETH) and TRIX. ENFTEE recently added support for Ethereum (ETH) payment. In May, KimJungman  collaborated with TriumphX, a developer of a cross-chain-based decentralized NFT platform, to release several works as NFTs for the first time.
