About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and French

Bae Bien-U is undoubtedly the greatest living photographer in Korea today. For over forty years he has been a tireless photographer of landscapes, particularly forests, in which the human form never figures. His images are spectacularly beautiful, formally incisive and inventive, borrowing from classical East Asian painting as much as 20th-century European and American art. This first monograph published in France highlights the importance of his work and its singular style: the surprising way in which shots are framed, perspective is deconstructed, and a new photographic space invented, while always remaining on a human scale.

Summary in French:
Bae Bien-U est sans conteste aujourd’hui le plus grand photographe coréen vivant. Depuis plus de quarante ans, il photographie sans relâche des paysages naturels, et notamment des forêts, dans lesquels n’apparaît jamais la figure humaine : les clichés qu’il en donne sont d’une spectaculaire beauté, d’une rigueur et d’une inventivité formelle qui empruntent à la fois à la tradition de la peinture classique orientale et à l’histoire de l’art européen et américain du XXe siècle. Cette première monographie publiée en France souligne l’importance de son travail et la singularité de son style, fait de cadrages surprenants, d’une déconstruction de la perspective et de l’invention d’un espace propre à la photographie, tout en restant toujours à hauteur d’homme.
