Real World

Korean photographer Seung Woo Back presents two different projects. Real World is a set of photographs made in a South Korean theme park which features miniatures from world-famous tourist locations; while Blow Up comprises a series of grainy enlargements derived from original photographs taken in North Korea. In each case, the photographic technique Back has chosen is as different as the subject matter, nevertheless the projects are united by the same concerns. What does it mean to make photographs of nationality? And how do we make sense of those photographs?
