So, Naksan is located on the east coast of the Korean peninsula. The name is taken from a beach overlooking the Sea of Japan (East Sea). This book was conceived during the heavy snow storms of February 2010. The photos are therefore characterized by details of crashing waves on the snow covered seashore. They are also dominated by a blank plane in the lower half of the image. This is where the snow has accumulated on the beach. The snow is then rendered as a singular flat surface devoid of scale or perspective. Accentuating the horizon line that cuts midway through the pictorial plane. - Flowers Gallery The poet and critic Shino Kuraishi wrote that Boomoon's photographs are "so large that they extend beyond the perimeter of the human body. Also, systematically arranging them to provide separate encounters with individual viewers, he creates sites conducive to a highly contemplative experience. So, wherever I stand in front of Boomoon's landscapes, I am inevitably drawn into dialogue with myself."
