LEE, JUNGJIN//April 22, 2010 at 00:33 am / BOOKS [International]A poetic volume of Korean photographer Jungjin Lee by Aperture/SepiaWind showcases the newest work by widely exhibited and internationally acclaimed Korean photographer. This publication highlights her incredibly painterly and complex panoramic landscape images.

Known for her laborious, textural photographic process, Lee brushes liquid emulsion ("liquid light") onto the surface of handmade mulberry paper. The texture of the paper and the gestural marks of the brush stroke create a unique painterly effect, which is beautifully reproduced in this, Lee’s first trade monograph.

Wind captures the ethereal quality of its namesake in a series of landscapes dominated by windswept expanses and foreboding cloud formations—panoramas that reveal an adventurous spirit, yet resist casual entry. Metaphors for an internal state of being and the forces that shape it, Lee's Wind landscapes are imbued with an elemental vastness, at once powerful and serene.

Photographs by Jungjin Lee. Text by Vicki Goldberg, Eugenia Parry.

THE EDUCATION OF A PHOTOGRAPHER //March 21, 2010 at 10:48 am / BOOKS [International]Text by Charles H. Traub, Steven Heller, and Adam B. BellAllworth Press, New York

"This lively and idiosyncratic collection of writings from the diverse thinkings about photography will bring encouragement and insight to all of those engaged in lens-based media in the twenty-first century. From the early twentieth-century masters to the postmoderns and on to today's incisive visionaries, this thought-provoking book will navigate the reader through the varied landscape of photography, eloquently expressing what it means to be a photographer" one reads on the backside cover and that is, essentially, true save for the fact that not all authors express themselves as clearly and eloquently as, say, John Szarkowski or Berenice Abbott. Moreover, I really wonder what makes somebody an "incisive visionary"? Anyway, these are details to be neglected for this tome is definitely worth spending time with because the reader will find in it lots of stimulating thoughts."
