Aestheticism and serene energies are central in South Korean photographer JungWon Park’s images. The quantity of surrealness is an instant call to attention, while also acting as an invitation for one to submit and repose. His rare shots require several minutes of long-exposures and–preferably–a cloudy day, raindrops included. Minimalism attends each scenic view Park captures with his medium format or pinhole camera, and quietness instills both inside and outside the pigment prints on fine art paper. Forgotten, dilapidated docks lead into waters so still, they appear solid; a lone fish possessing iridescent scales swims into a hazy backdrop; two barren trees reach for one another, but never touch for all eternity. These visuals and many more are the pleasant calculations of Park’s making.

The photographer lives close to the sea with his family in Busan, South Korea. There, he finds great personal comfort and artistic inspiration. Park is a doctor and outside of work and photography, he also enjoys reading philosophy. His professional goal is purely to touch the hearts of others. “That's the moment you meet another world,” he says. “I want to show you my world; it may change your world. Come and feel.”
