In spite of the flood of people that inhabit the city, I am often struck by the difficulty of finding happiness and making real connections with others. However, I find myself getting used to a feeling of indifference to others, and think that it might be natural that people do not make every effort to know each other in this environment. My images of people, without clearly visible facial expressions, explore what I see as the nature of a city and our existence within it. I am interested in the neurosis that the modern city has generated. –Bojune Kwon

Bojune Kwon is a freelance and fine-art photographer with a professional background in commercial photography. He was born in South Korea and majored in Photography at Kyungil University in Korea. He recently completed his Master of Professional Studies (MPS) in Digital Photography at The School of Visual Arts and is now based in New York City.

Bojune explained how he creates his images, "
Each photograph is made up of a composite of about a hundred images taken in the same place. To capture the various facial expressions, I usually took six hundred photographs for one image." This work will be on display in an upcoming group exhibition curated by Michael Foley.

The question of time or how, with pause B, to erase people.
Photography is a fight against deletion or Louis Daguerre was wrong.

These pictures are awesome! I love it! The city looks more alive. It shows how close(physically) we are to each other yet so distant.
