I’m back with another flickr spotlight and this time around I have found my way to a photographer I have been following for a long time now, YoungDoo Moon. While going through her photos my only problem was deciding which photos to feature here as desktops because there were so many that I initially had selected as candidates and going through 5000+ photos was no short task! Knowing this I would like to mention that one of the things I find intriguing about her work is her endurance for taking photos. She seems to constantly stumble across dreamy well lit things to shoot and her style has this soft, welcoming sort of a feel to it. Even her darker images have an undeniable calm to them.
But lets take a step back, who is YoungDoo? She is a native Korean and grew up in a small village but now resides in Seoul. She is no stranger to travel, however and has ventured all over Europe, the US, Canada, Australia, and Japan. In Seoul she works as a graphic designer full time and this is how she got into photography more seriously because as a student of design she took classes where she had the chance to work with film and learn more about the technical/ interesting side of the medium.
For her photography is both therapeutic and sometimes emotional as she approaches it as a way to communicate feeling when words can not be found. This sort of visual communicating comes through clearly in her subtle imagery. I like her use of color to help these images feel alive in a quiet sort of a way.
I am more than happy that she agreed to let me share a handful of images here for the visitors of fiftyfootshadows.net as desktops. If you like what you have seen here feel free to leave a comment and/or check out her flickr stream by following this link here!
