Park, Ho Sang


Most recent offering at 20x200 (I know, I'm such a tool but isn't this lovely!)...

(I don't know if you can tell but these are large format photos ... a rush of both detail and perspective at the same time, not to mention the colors! )

Juliane Eirich

Today's 20x200 edition features artist Juliane Eirich photography from her 1.5 years in Korea on an art grant (okay she was there to be with her Korean boyfriend also). This photo is from her series Korea Diary which is soon to be published as a book and I just think it's a perfect piece of happy in a grimly grey day...

Is she me?


Except the "Yale" part.

Photographer Hee Jin Kang's one of those one to watch types and her documentary work, esp the collection "Sandy's deli" makes me uncomfortable it is so close to home.

Jeong Mee Yoon

A lovely photographer based in Seoul. I'm drawn especially to the humor in her work and the immediate sense of accessibility. My husband met her in Santa Fe last year and learned she'd been a 'regular' housewife before pursuing photography. When asked if her husband appreciated her career she answered with a grin, "He change mind when I make money." Koreans are if anything a practical people...


A link to her online portfolio is here.
