Yang Seungwook

Photographer

 

“Sometimes I feel awkward and unfamiliar on the way, when seeing rubbish abandoned on the street or things left alone. My photographs started with the process that catching the moments. I have been making works through creating novel scenes, adding my own experiences and recollections to the moments, and reproducing images taken already.” – Yang Seungwook

“지나가던 길에 버려진 쓰레기나 사물들로 인해 그 주변이 굉장히 어색하고 낯설게 느껴질 때가 있다. 이런 순간들을 포착하는 과정에서 사진작업이 시작되었다. 여기에 개인적인 경험과 기억이 더해져 새로운 장면을 연출하기도 하고, 이미 촬영된 이미지들을 섞어 재편집함으로서 또 다른 작업을 만들어내고 있다.” – Yang Seungwook
