The South Korean’s large format photographs beautifully capture the infinite presence of nature. Boomoon, who works in Seoul, is inspired by ‘sansu’ meaning ‘mountain-water, which is a central idea of Far-Eastern depictions of nature relating to its metaphysical characteristics.
South Korean artist Boomoon creates utterly absorbing landscapes devoid of human context. In this limited selection from his recent work, the artist photographs the sky from a high-altitude aeroplane, as well as arctic landscapes and turbulent seas. The artist perfectly captures the harsh, biting, inhospitable coldness of the natural world.
