The Foggy Night is a series of fine art color landscape photographs that focus on the San Francisco Bay Area and cityscapes exploring lights and houses and other surrounding subjects.
This body of work is about uncommon beauty based upon night lights within the landscape. I’m photographing these urban landscapes because I was getting bored with the landscape of endless apartment buildings in Korea, so the USA has been a significant interest of mine due to its type of landscape that combines both the living environment and artificial exterior lighting. And it is within this landscape that I have found solace and peace within myself as my camera turns to unusual attractiveness of the night. Due to continued transformation, the night lights never disappoint me as they show a different face with each visit, revealing their strange elegance.
The idea is the uncommon beauty of the urban landscape on foggy nights. The fog soaks into the color of the artificial lights, and changes their colors. Through the dim lights and subjects, I plan to show the changeability of color in these still images to viewers because we can get so caught up in our daily lives that we forget to actually look at our surroundings and see what is amazing about them. For this series, I have created images of unique tonality that focus on the color and light of urban foggy nights.
As viewers explore the work, I intend for them to look upon the images and experience the unique beauty that is hidden in the night.
