19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People

When I take a picture of Sae-hyun while working on a project, sometimes it feels like I'm taking a picture of myself. When I look back on my childhood, when there was nothing particularly unhappy, I sometimes feel unhappy for no apparent reason. It may be due to the frustration of fate, such that the image remains and its object disappears. This work suggests that the force majeure factor of the act of leaving a photographic image is similar to the emotion the character in the photograph feels when looking at his image reflected in the water.
