You know Christina Paik. Though she spends most of her time behind the camera and hadn’t revealed her full face until her recent appearance in The Coveteur, she’s becoming something of a larger public figure — taking on projects with names like Louis Vuitton, Off-White, Nike, Yohji Yamamoto, Sacai, Lacoste, Acne Studios, and Gentle Monster. While she’s just as likely to appear in a street style roundup as in a gallery space, Paik maintains that her art should be separated from her image. As the internationally active photographer explained, “My looks have nothing to do with my work. I want the audience to judge the work for itself, not by my appearance.”
