Statement

Artist's note:

"Life couldn't be described as paused-time image. Photography is artificial thing to show our life because it takes picture of just one moment of life. When I see the photography, I look back part of my life, not just one moment. So, what if change method to take a record of life, what if add more time for the paused picture? I thought that if I add more time in the photography with long exposure, photography could reflects deep emotion of human life. 
Furthermore, until now, abstract photography just takes one part of a still object. But the fundamental concept of ‘Abstract’ is not a part of some thing. Abstract photography has to express some feeling or some thing by dots, lines, faces, and colors. If not, abstract photography does not need to be separate from Still photography. So I considered how I can make abstract images by using a camera. As everybody knows, camera can takes pictures that we see, but also it can takes pictures that we can not see. I use camera like a paint brush by long exposure of camera. When I take pictures with long exposure, the new images created are from the original objects becoming blurred. And this new image is completed through digital developing. But digital developing does not mean composed or manipulated. Developing means just coloring, exposure or contrast to create an abstract photography. From this project, I'd like to express deep emotions of human by photography which was not showed up before. Also I hope to build up Abstract photography as a part of photography as a medium."
