Black Wind

About Author(s)

Gap Chul Lee graduated from Shingu University and started as a documentary photographer. He soon escaped the boundaries of the genre to build his own style. Renowned for his original approach to photography and its visual expression, Lee captures the Korean sentiment of ‘han’ and the otherwise intangible tenacity embedded in Korean identity. 

Lee has participated in a number of solo exhibitions including the Gyeongin Museum of Art (Seoul), Kumho Museum of Art (Seoul), Le Musée du Louvre (Paris), Montpellier Photo Gallery, Houston Museum of Fine Arts (Houston), Australian Center for Photography (Sydney), and the GoEun Museum of Photography (Busan). 

He has also won the Donggang Prize for Photography, Photo City Sagamihara Asia Photo in Japan, and the Lee Myung-dong Photo Award. His works are housed in a number of prestigious institutions in Seoul, including Kumho Museum of Art, Hanmi Museum of Photography, and the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary.

About Author(s)

Barbara Bosworth received her Masters in Fine Arts in photography from Rochester Institute of Technology (New York) and currently works as a Professor of Photography at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston. Bosworth sees photography as a language of continuous light and darkness, an act of grasping disappearing things and a method for considering the meaning of life and death. 

Bosworth’s work has been widely exhibited, notably in recent retrospectives at the Denver Art Museum (Colorado), Peabody Essex Museum in (Massachusetts), the Smithsonian American Art Museum (Washington, D.C.), plus the Phoenix Art Museum (Arizona). She has published four artist books with Datz Press.
