Hosang Park featured on 20x200 today.

Love the shapes, details and colors.

I photograph small parks located within and around living spaces in downtown Seoul.

I pay attention to the images as seen from a bird’s-eye view. While working, I focus not on relating special stories about them but on just presenting the spaces. I think that pictures presented that way can be a pathway to remind viewers of their own thoughts on familiar places—in particular, their thoughts or discussions regarding parks. The parks, as seen here, from a bird's-eye view, reflect characteristics of downtown areas and distorted realities. In addition, they also reveal fabricated Korean-style space and the stark realities of democracy in a more comic way.
