...결국 모든 사진은 셀프포트레이트가 아닌가, 라고 생각합니다.
그러던 어느날엔가 저의 사진을 다른 사람들에 보여주는것이 과연 어떠한 의미가 있는것인가를 생각하게 되었습니다.
셔터는 항상 열려있고,
그 셔터를 작동시키는것은 결국 사람입니다.
당시 저로서는, 결국 그런게 아닌가 하고 생각 했었습니다.
그로부터 수년이 흐른후,
잘 듣는 것이 무엇보다 중요하다는 것을 느꼈습니다.
잘 듣는다는 것을 통하여 세상의 많은 것들이 나에게 많은 이야기를 들려 줍니다.
그렇게 안과 밖 그리고 그것이 하나였음을 생각합니다.
그리하여 최근엔 엥프라맹스(inframince)를 소재로 작업을 이어가고 있습니다.
... In the end, I think all photos are self portraits.
One day, what does it mean to show my works to others?
I came to think about what it means.
The shutter is always open, and eventually it is the person who activates the shutter.
Through my life, I thought it would be like that in the end.
After many years from that, I felt that listening is more important than anything else.
Through listening well, many things in the world tell me many stories.
I think that inside and outside were the same one.
And recently, I've been working on with infraramince.
