Kyungwoo Chun

"South Korean photographer Kyungwoo Chun has created multiple bodies of work wherein the subjects sit for his camera for minutes, hours or days at a time, depending on the goal of the specific project. In one of his most well-known projects, One Hour Portrait, Chun leaves the exposure time of at least one hour for his subjects, but remains in the room with them, believing that in the longer duration of this photographic event, a certain kind of empathy is arrived at between himself and the photographed subject that will be rendered in the final print of this prolonged encounter. This process of photography is, according to Chun, equal to an exchange of souls. Chun firmly believes that his images can only be created through this dialogue and exchange between himself and the subject." La suite sur Hey Hot Shot
