    Reinterpreting the photo book, and turning it into a series of static and moving posters. Two posters from the left are based on concept of slowness, and the rest two are based on concept of dynamism.

    variable edition of three hand-bound books | Nov – Dec 2017 
    This book is in variable edition of three. As in accordion book form, it is double sided. One side has photos from Korea, and the other side has photos from France. Each spread includes one more layer of transparent paper that has date of the photo and some drawings on it. The dates are same for the photos so they are letterpress printed and drawings are hand-drawn, so each book has different drawings.  
  • Inter;action photobook | Mar 2017
    It is always interesting to see how figure and background interact with each other. This series of photos shows how I naturally capture the moment of figure and background/environment. Also, all the texts in this book interact with the photos in weirdly harmonious way. ( closeup of texts in the book)
