Reminiscence. A walk through the other side of my mind
The Korean photographer Jung A Kim describes her intense relationship with photography: »Through photography I have the feeling of being the world. I perceive things with my eyes and my heart and start to be a human being.« Her pictures are diary-like records that reflect her innermost thoughts and poetically capture the essential relationship between man and nature. Reminiscence serves to bring the past to light. In todays media-oriented times, this is an important aspect for the artist. By means of photography the intangible world of thoughts and memories can manifest itself in reality. Jung A Kims photographs can in some cases be understood as a metaphor for recollections that were initially overlooked but which find their way back to us in the form of images. The pictures tell the artists own story but also speak to the universal ties between humankind and all of Creation, ultimately presenting us with small fragments of life.
