For the past 6 months or so I have been working on a photography project with fellow photographer, YoungDoo Moon. The idea is described best in the little bio that I wrote for the project:
“OUR WINDOW began in September 2009 when YoungDoo Moon and John Carey started to create a weekly photographic diptych hoping to find serendipitous discoveries where two visions colided into one.
Once a week each photographer submited a photo based on a pre-determined theme unaware of what the other had shot. The two photos were then combined to discover an often beautiful connection found in both the concept and vision each photographer brought to the idea. While they started the project as a way to get to know each other in a unique way YoungDoo and John continue to work on the collaboration for the love of the art and the unexpected connections that are created within it.
Our Window is an ongoing series which can be seen on the official website of the project, www.ourwindow.net, and this is the first exhibition of photographs from the series.”
Its been a wonderful experience and we have had a lot of fun working on it. While we have taken a small break in posting while I have been here in Korea with her we will get back to regular posting soon I’m sure. I feel that the series has just begin and I am looking forward to seeing where it ends up in another 6 months and hopefully we will build a book from many of the images eventually.
The other big news around the idea and the reason for posting is that together with YoungDoo we are having a small exhibition on friday here in seoul at a fantastic french bakery here featuring nine images from the series. The opportunity sprung out of nowhere and we have jumped right on it and have printed up postcard flyers and the photo prints are being framed nicely now. The opening will be this friday and there will be food and drinks for those who come.
The website for the project is sort of half way done but it works well enough for now but hopefully we will get that updated this week before the opening but you can click through the photos to see what we have done so far. I have included the postcard here after the read more link as well for those interested or if any readers are living in Seoul and want to come out and say hello!
