Hyoung Tae, Lim (Artist/Photographer) & Jeong Ju, Choi (Contributor). I SEE: PHOTOGRAPHS BY LIM HYOUNG TAE. Seoul, Korea: Seoul Museum Of Art, 2011. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 35 pages. As New.

Exhibition Catalog. Sequence of color photographs. The first and only edition. Published in a tiny print run as a softcover original only. There is no ISBN. The book is now rare. It is beautifully produced by the Seoul Museum of Art, with pictorial softcovers, text by Choi Jeong Ju, and stunning color photographs by Lim Hyoung Tae that are reproduced on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Seoul, Korea to the highest standards. The reproduction quality of the images is remarkable for their clarity, rich tonal range, and warmth. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Lim Hyoung Tae's Conceptual art photography. He appears in every image, situating himself in Nature, a juxtaposition that alludes to his philosophy of "being-towards-death" as "being-returning-to-Nature" (the artist is deeply influenced by Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, as indeed, many artists who are obsessed by death and dying are). The simplicity of the photographs belies their rich and complex layered-ness. Like all reflective artists, Lim Hyoung Tae's coolly detached style presents the Ordinary as being transformed and made Extraordinary through the intervention of art. Each image is part of a sequence that is individually and collectively titled "I See". The artist/photographer has also put together a DVD of his work, which is laid-into the book. An absolute "must-have" title for Lim Hyoung Tae collectors. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Exhibition Catalog available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare copy thus. 12 color plates, 1 DVD. One of the most brilliant living Korean artist/photographers. A fine copy. . $40.00
