Location is photographer CHOI Yongjoon’s first photobook documenting East Asian cities such as Tokyo and Seoul. Geometrically well designed, his photographs are a vivid reinterpretation of high-density cities in Asia. Hashtagging and index curation by architects LIM Jeeseon and JUN Hyunbai add another ‘flavor’ to the photographs. A number of snapshots collected by CHOI while locating ‘photogenic’ places on 3D Map are included, whose meaning is addressed by the critic KIM Jihoon.
Photographer based in Seoul, Korea.
Interested in topography, landmarks and urbanscape, Choi explores new perspectives on modern East Asian cities through photography. Recently, he uses tools such as Google Earth and 3D Map to locate places; these places are then transferred to photography. Choi took part in exhibitions such as ‘The Scrap’ and ‘Poster Only’ and collaborates with various magazines and designers.
