White Korean porcelain vessels, with a long history of hundreds of years were originally used exclusively by the royal court and later also by the elites, eventually by the common people. The beauty in their plain simplicity of these white vessels have fascinated many advocates of the Folk Art movement in Japan including Soetsu Yanagi who actively promoted the “beauty of usage”, as well as collectors from the Western countries. In order to rebuild the collection of home treasures, Koo travelled around the world to capture the spirits of these vessels dispersed in various museums around the world. His photography carefully and beautifully portrays the history and memories contained in these vessels by their delicate texture and details.\n \nWith the cooperation of the Japan Folks Crafts Museum, we have selected 11 works together with the artist from his photographs of Soetsu Yanagi’s white Korean porcelain collection, captured in 2006, to be newly released as our platinum print series this year. Each vessel’s unique texture developed through the passage of time and the delicate beauty in their simplicity are enhanced by the rich tonality and high definition of platinum and palladium prints.
