Second Exhibition at Blank Space

Photography is all about defining what is time and light.
Whether it always seems to be capturing the moment, though, it is also the series of the times.

In memory of my friend, Sangwook

It was quite a shock news to me.
He left...
Why so early?

In 2007, Sangwook and I had a project together at New York.
He is the funniest guy whom I have ever met. And I also remember how much he cares about people. I was lucky that at least I could spend a week with him here in New York.
I already miss you, my friend.
See you again at heaven.
