17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Just after Christmas_November

Last winter, I stayed in a small village in Norway. Everything there seemed to have stopped from Christmas, the biggest holiday in the West. The tension of the people for the new year was hard to find in there. I photographed both the beautiful winter nature I had never seen before and the traces of the Christmas party left behind. Later, I came back to my country, Korea with these images and printed them in Korea. The images got paper-bodies of various sizes and forms. They were also placed next to my pieces of stuff and got scratches from everyday life.
