earth (after taranoel)

    Newer Older


    Thanks to one of my favorite flickr folk, taranoel for letting me post this revision of one of her wonderful photoworks. I found her original photograph to be very evocative, although it wasn't after making about ten different variations that I started to figure out where it wanted to take me: back home. When I was young I lived in South Korea and both the child's face and various things that showed up in the processing started reminding me of Korea. Specifically I was reminded of a profound connection to the earth (as in planet and dirt) that I felt in that culture when I was growing up.
    My work on this is also a bit of an hommage to a Korean artist who I was reminded of today and whose work has long had a hold on me: 박 수 근 (Bak Su Geun)
