This exhibition explores Hyung-Geun Park’s exploration of landscape photography from 2003 to present. For Hyung-Geun, his practice is grounded in his notion that reality and perception are not the same and his photographic works are heavily inspired by his imagination.


 

 For the Untitled series of 2003-4, he chose to photograph natural settings where the presence of human beings is absent yet implied; sites, which for him, suggested something powerful and mysterious. Their stillness together with his manipulation of the scenes and the heightened, almost psychedelic colour, suggest a variety of hidden narratives, histories or events,triggering the imagination of the viewer.
