The winter sea that Boomoon photographed was so stormy it could just as well be called a sea of snow. The snow is constantly, imperceptibly, burying and sinking the landscape in a uniform whiteness. But the accumulating snow does not simply cover and hide the landscape, it strips away the cover of existing meaning that envelops the figure of nature. At times the windblown snow violently agitates the scene, but this agitation can also be seen having the same endpoint. The snow is making the landscape new. - from the introduction by Shino Kuraishi. Our third monograph with the contemporary artist Boomoon presents a series of 33 photographs of a snowstorm where the sea meets the coast of Naksan. The series takes its name from a beach in northeast Korea that faces Japan. But the photographs construct an encounter for the beholders with themselves, wherever they may be, to reflect on the place they are in now, so the location is 'nowhere.' Or, as was the case with Boomoon's previous book, On the Clouds, 'anywhere'.

Book Description Nazraeli Press, Portland, Oregon, 2011. Hardcover. Condition: New. 1st Edition. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Gray cloth-covered boards with title stamped in black on cover and spine; no dust jacket as issued. Photographs by Boomoon. Essay by Shino Kuraishi.

From the artist: "Naksan, created in February 2010, is characterized by its vertical frame, details in waves and big size. The snowy shore in the lower part of the image is an important element bonding the viewer to the scene. The poet and critic Shino Kuraishi wrote, 'the sea shore, transformed into a uniform, absolute blank by the accumulated snow, looms before the body of the beholder and serves as a platform that blocks the movement of the incoming waves.The shore may be a "stage," but it is entirely anti-theatrical. It has nothing to do with spectacle, of a type that would satisfy the visual desires of the general public. Rather, it is as if the stage was built for one beholder alone. These are photographs for a quiet dialogue with oneself. The vertical frame, and the presence of the absolute blank "stage" at the bottom of the frame, circumscribe and clarify the fact that, at this very moment, the photographer-beholder is witnessing face-on the event taking place in this absolute zone. At the same time, the stage that stands of the side of the beholder becomes overt. In other words, it is a mirror. I confront myself as a landscape.'". Seller Inventory # 110226
