“Looking at Kim Thue's images makes you lean into sharp places. His work holds both beauty and terror, seemingly suggesting that the inextricable coexistence of the two is a theme we all carry inside ourselves.” - Clayton Maxwell, writer and photography critic.
Kim was born in September 1980 in Grindsted - a small Danish town situated on the windy moors of Jutland.
As a restless teenager he moved to the U.K, where he graduated from the Editorial Photography course at Brighton University in 2006.
Kim has undertaken extensive projects in countries as diverse as China, Greenland and Sierra Leone. His work has been exhibited internationally and published in leading magazines and newspapers, including Adbusters, Vice, Eyemazing, Neue Zürcher Zeitung, Information and LFI (Leica Fotographie International).
In March 2012 his debut book "DEAD TRAFFIC" was released by Dienacht Publishing in conjunction with a solo exhibition at the Freelens Gallery in Hamburg.
He is represented by the Italian photo agency Prospekt and currently lives in London.
