South Korean photographer Yoon Giljung
captures a wide array of subjects that, upon first glance, may seem completely unrelated. Traditional stone statues, replicas of fruits and flowers, faces of major world leaders… But the work of photography, at its core, is to capture, reflect, and reinterpret. Especially when the eye loses focus, stops noticing details, or simply forgets what to look for. And so, his work masterfully captures everything that we’ve started to overlook – the universal desires that remain unchanged from generation to generation, the differences between real and artificial beauty, the cost of selfishness. Stone statues, plastic replicas, faces of politicians. Today he tells us a bit more about the inspiration behind his projects, the experience of visiting his own exhibitions and the purpose of photography.
