Photobook Club Seoul presents #30 플로리안 봉길 그로스의 한국 | Florian Bong-Kil Grosse's Hanguk.
Hanguk is less the documentation of a country and its inhabitants. Rather, for me the work is a pictorial description of a place that belongs to my own wholly personal imagination. It is the attempt to bring the images of external reality into agreement with those of inner reality. Thus, I don’t look at otherness; I don’t look at that which separates me from the world of my previous experience. What I found in Korea is much more a feeling of open attachment, a sense of the alien and yet strangely familiar.
