The photographic work of the 1969 in Seoul, Korea, born artist Kyungwoo Chun is known for its sensitive atmosphere. Chun, who finished his studies 1992 with B.F.A. in Photography, College of Arts, Chung-Ang University, Korea, and with Diploma in Communication Design, Universität Wuppertal, Germany, 2000, choices intentionaly long exposure times. He turns away from the original Western purpose of photography, to document, to capture a moment and present a clear picture of reality. The long exposure time gives him the opportunity to interact with his subjects and to build a relationship. Mostly the participants in Chun's work are given a framework in which to act. In addition to allowing photographer and subject to interact, the long exposure times allow Chun to capture more than a snapshot. Fleeting moments are piled on top of each other, allowing the viewer to see time in a single moment. Kyungwoo Chun lives and works in Seoul, he is teaching at the Chung-Ang University in Seoul, KoreaRead More
