Each image invites the viewer to enter a state of reflection and contemplation through an intimate connection with nature. The scenes in each photograph are ones that we often see in daily life: a meadow, a tumultuous sea, the bluest sky on a summer day. By immortalizing these ordinary moments in time with her camera, Youngsook SONG encourages the viewer to embrace the ceaseless energy of nature. It is abundantly clear that she has a deep and personal relationship with the natural world, and she graciously shares this connection through her photographs.
This meditative series of images by SONG nurtures an evocative state of mind that allows the viewer to discover a personal way of relating to nature. She has a poetic visual sensibility that deals with a broad range of human feelings. Each image has its own presence: however, experiencing the entire series as a whole creates a more meaningful, introspective state of mind. We should feel grateful to Song for awakening our sensitivities and sharing her inspirations.
