By Helene Binet and Byoung Cho
Swiss French photographer Hélène Binet takes us on a visual journey through a world of stone, walls and gardens that define and celebrate the Korean art of making. In pure and calm photographs, The Intimacy of Making captures the traditional Korean architecture of three historical sites. Binet examines different typologies of traditional architecture in Korea: the Confucian school and sacred place Byeongsan Seowon; the garden and tea house Soswaewon; and the Jongmyo Shrine. Her camera work brings together both nature and the built structures, and reveals the souls of the three places.
