- PhMuseum 2023 Photography Grant
Dates2021 - Ongoing
- Location Daegu
The project started purely with interest and love for a person. I wanted to capture the growth of my nephew Kim Sae-hyun, my best friend from the time he was born until now, and the changes around him in photos. The desire to capture such a loved one in a photograph is gradually undergoing a change by accommodating factors that make the work imperfect in the project.
The conceptual element of the imperfection of the photographic medium was actively accepted in the work. In addition, staged photo works that was produced by projecting my own childhood memories onto Sae-hyun was added to the project.
Accordingly, this project has become a work with various layers, mixing existence of Saehyun, the relationship between me and him, and my conceptual and emotional views on the photographic medium.
By arranging or correlating these disparate elements, I try to explore the different possibilities of photography and the lives of me and Sae-hyun.
