Ahn Jun – ‘One Life‘

Ahn Jun‘s series ‘One Life’ – “investigating the relationship between performance and photography, surreality within a real world made by beauty of coincidence”

In her unphotoshopped photos resembling paintings, the artist wanted to capture imaginary situations “as if your everyday lives stopped temporarily and the gravity disappeared for a moment.”  She explained her choice of apple as a symbol with multiple meanings. “Sometime it means the Newton’s apple and sometime it means the fruit of knowledge, and so on… In reality, if you throw an apple, it will fall … I wanted to express the law of nature or the apple transcending its destiny after it was thrown away.”

The quotations in the 2nd paragraph are from a short video about the artist, created by Christophe Guye Galerie, where could also have a quick look at her other works.

The series is published in a photobook by shashasha (they deliver Japanese and Asian Photography worldwide).
