Boomoon
Stargazing at Sokcho
HC 43 x 33 cm.
Nazraeli 2006

Boomoon?s third book with Nazraeli Press, Stargazing at Sokcho comprises 19 dreamlike land- and skyscapes made in the artist?s secluded hometown in north-eastern Korea. Resembling nothing so much as the way the skies might look from the inside of a snow-globe, these gorgeous color photographs include hints of Sokcho?s soaring granite peaks and dense forests, clear, bitterly cold skies, and an almost audible roar of silent eternity. Boomoon is widely considered one of South Korea?s most important contemporary artists. His photographs and films have been shown widely in Asia and Europe, and are included in important collections throughout the world. Stargazing at Sokcho is printed on matt art paper, with a double varnish, in an oversized horizontal format; this first printing is limited to 500 casebound copies.
