Kyungwoo Chun - The Weight
|Publisher||Van Zoetendaal Publishers|
Korean photographer Kyungwoo Chun’s blurred images are created through a process of continuous long exposure, a stylistic method to condense time that has become a characteristic trait in his work. His softly controlled treatment of his subjects, blurred portraits that depict people in an unconventional way, intensify the moment of encounter between the artist and his subject while also playing with traditional portraiture. Chun, who is based in Germany but photographs people from all over the world, addresses issues such as identity, physical interactions, and language barriers in his images, where figural forms can be transformed into abstracted colour and shapes.
