What Happened to Nampodong?


When I first arrived I was in the company of some extremely talented photographers. They gave me a start into a world that would drain my wallet and fill my heart with joy, almost simultaneously. One of the best areas in Busan that a photographer could go to drain his wallet and walk away with some nice gear was Nampodong. It’s streets were lined with camera shops and underground was full of retro gear. It was a place where you’d give a friendly nod when you saw a camera bag or tripod.

Winter. Snow. Tree. Forest by Ki Hyung-do

Winter. Snow. Tree. Forest by Ki Hyung-do (1960-1989)

The snow
piles up here and there,
without being able to get all the way out of the forest.

“Is it you?
Don’t hurry.”
Thump. He falls down,
hit by a sharp blade.

I return home,
dragging the tree.
As I trim off the twigs,
I listen to the silence of the tree:
“I am here.
Death is unmasked life.
Our lives, our winters are like that, too.”

The Winter Tree’s Shadow by Choi Don-sun

A Tree Grows in Kyungsung

My last spin across the dance floor that is Korea, I was reluctant to make my apartment into a home.  I was only going to be there for a year so why buy much?  Well my return has hopefully made me a bit wiser, but only time will tell.

 Last year I put up a few posters up on the walls and a few drawings later in the year done by my students, but beyond that I didn't change much.

this work blows my mind

it changes your perspective with a simple gesture of a new horizon.

Tree Line

‘This is an ongoing series of constructed photographs rooted in the forest. These works, carried out in Surrey, Hampshire and Wales,involve site specific interventions in the landscape, ‘wrapping’ trees with white material to construct a visual relationship between tree, not-tree and the line of horizon according to the camera’s viewpoint.’
