Same place, different year.
# Paris, 2014 / 2012

 

This project is to remind our lives and travels in the past. So, I visited to Paris again with the exact printed images to express my concept. Then, I tried to find all the same places I'd taken pictures before and overlaped the photograhs on the sceneries which are in the present. 

 

And the project will be continued in Korea and other countries I've been before.

 

 

 
Project 20.
# 2005-2014

 

The photography exhibition in New York from 21st to 30th in Nov, 2015.

 

I've used Canon EOS 20D for 10 years since I got it in 2005. At that time, I was 20 years old in Korean age. Then, I kept using that camera for my whole twenties by thinking that I was the only one who had been taking with 20D from 20 years old to 29 years old in Korean. That's why the project is named as 'Project 20'.

 

With Canon EOS 20D, I've been to South Korea, the States, Canada, Colombia, U.K, Germany, France, Spain, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong. Then, here I display only 20 photographs I like the most.

 

 

Special thanks to my family, friends, and the people I've met.

 

 
Travel with Seungwoo.
# Paris, 2014

 

This project is for an artist 'Seungwoo Nam' who has Savant Syndrome. He has a brilliant skill for abstract and humorous drawing. However, he can't get on a plane because of the syndrome. For that reason, he's not able to appreciate the beautiful world except Korea. So, I decided to design a project to share the beauty with him. Then, I brought my character that Seungwoo drew for me when we first met. And I went to everywhere in Paris with his drawing and took pictures with my smart phone to make him feel realism and close to the pictures, not like just a work, because many people take photos with their smart phone nowadays. Also, I decorated them at children's level.

 

By this project, I hope Seungwoo knows how beautiful the world is and keeps drawing to communicate with people by his works.

 

 

Special thanks to Seungwoo, his family, Boram, and Alicia.

Open.
# Seoul, 2014

 

The photography exhibition at WCO KOREA from 10th to 31st in Dec, 2014.

 

The name of the event is 'OPEN'. Then, the photographs consist of 4 seasons. That means there are 4 beginings from spring to winter in a year. Because of that, I arrange the pictures like that order. Also, I've been in the States for a year and especially used to go to New York often. Thus, I choose all 12 photos which are from NYC.

 

Besides, there is one more reason why the exhibition is named as 'OPEN'. The purpose is that I want people to open their eyes much more bigger to feel the beautiful sceneries instead of being in NYC.

Same place, different year.
# 2015 ~ / 2005~2014

 

This project is to remind our lives and travels in the past. So, I visit to all the same places again with the exact printed images to express my concept and overlap the photograhs on the sceneries which are in the present. 

 

The project continues in Korea and other countries I've been before.

Because of the concept for the movie, SSAF requests me to provide some pictures taken abroad. Then, I offered all 4 pictures and the company used them,

Shoot For Love
# 2015, New York

2 B FREE 
# 2015 ~ , Korea

 

This project expresses a thought which is to be away from our ordinary life. It seems like sometimes we feel everything is same in every single moment.

 

However, we can find the special things from the ordinary places even if it is a small one.

 

The model, Sardor living in Korea as a foreigner for 8 years, and I want to look for those moments from everywhere. The ordinary is the special.

 

That's why we started this project.

 

 

 

 
Project 20.
# 2005-2014

 

The photography exhibition in Seoul from May 13th to 27th and June 30th to July 6th, in 2016 .

 

I've used Canon EOS 20D for 10 years since I got it in 2005. At that time, I was 20 years old in Korean age. Then, I kept using that camera for my whole twenties by thinking that I was the only one who had been taking with 20D from 20 years old to 29 years old in Korean.

Coincidence, Waiting.
# 2006-2016

The photography exhibition in Seoul from Feb 9th to 28th at UNESCO Korea, in 2017 .

I've used Nikon F3 since 2006. The camera is a film one. So every time when I take pictures with F3, I should concentrate on the moments.

Therefore, I decided the title of the exhibition

as 'Coincidence, Waiting'.

Code Yellow.
# 2015

The photography exhibition in Seoul from June 12th to Aug 31st at Olympus Korea, in 2017.

I focused on only the color 'yellow' to describe the 

city 'New York'. So, I stayed in NYC for 40 days

to see and observe everything related to yellow in

2015.

Then, I'd made an  effort to choose the right 

images for the exhibition since I got back to Korea.

After that, I made a decision to select all 35 pictures for that.

*The exhibition is sponsored by

Olympus Korea, Blue Canvas, Snaps.

Han river's skin.
# 2016

The photography exhibition in Seoul from June 17th and 18th at 'Hey Startups(SETEC), in 2017.

I'd ​captured only Han river's surface for a year. I emphasized the surface as people's skin, so I zoomed the river.

Then, I described the beauty of the river when

its color changed in different way according to

the seasons.

Lastly, the reason why I did is to save the beauty

and show our descendant about it in the future.
