Korean photographer Seung Hoon Park is having a solo show of new photographs at Pyo Gallery LA entitled Travel Log - Italy, The Story of Three Cities. These photos weave together a narrative from tourist landmarks and fragments of 16 mm film into a cinematic experience, exploring the landscape as a journal of daily inquiry.
The artist overlaid filmstrips, arranged to capture within a single frame the elusive magic of Rome, Firenze and Milan. The works are titled "Textus,"which references the Latin word for fabric to reinforce the physical aspect of the film, woven both vertically and horizontally.
Unlike many photographers whom strive to erase their presence in the work, Park purposely leaves his fingerprints and misaligned pieces behind to suggest that the story is unfolding and evolving.
