Long-Exposure Photo Exhibit + Korean American Photographer Atta Kim + NBMAA

Monday, August 27, 2012

Definitely sounds like an interesting exhibit if you can make it.

Change is the only constant in life. That philosophy drives the work of Korean-American photographer Atta Kim, both in his cityscapes and his depictions of human interactions. His artist's statement declares "Disappearance is the reality of all existence. Reality is not clear to us; it must be interpreted to be revealed."

A new exhibit of long-exposure photographs by Kim at the New Britain Museum of American Art, six photos in all, emphasize this transitory nature of human existence, a key feature in Buddhist philosophy, which Kim studies.
