about my work.
handmade silver gelatin photography on traditional corean and japanese paper.
presented in custom-built flat lightboxes,
framed in aluminium.
silver salts form density on the paper.
backlighting makes highlights more brilliant while deep shadows remain dense.
it alters the scale of greytones and strengthens contrast.
interaction of light and shadow fascinates me. taking a closer look, ordinary sights reveal a secret, tell a story, make me wonder.
