Bae Bien-U is renowned for creating meditative landscape photographs, which have an almost calligraphic quality about them. The leitmotif behind his photographs is a reflection on communion and the possible osmosis of man with nature – the source of life – with which we must live in harmony.
“Recently, more people are showing interest in gelatin silver prints and analog photographs. The corona pandemic has given us more time to look back at natural processes. I went back to my old prints, both framed and unframed. I recall the memories and summon all the emotions when I was in the darkroom and the times when I wandered around the forests and seaside to take photos. I feel the true beauty of the photography.” – Bae Bien-U
