Yeondoo Jung

Yeondoo Jung's photography is pretty amazing.  He takes the surreal quality of any child's drawing and runs with it.  The fact that he is inspired by something that most people would look over to me is like finding unlimited hidden treasure.  The idea of encountering a spectacle and magic in the mundane while really taking advantage of composition/perspective in these photographs really makes them strong.  And because the medium is photography it is as if he's giving validity to these drawings and expressing that all that comes from a child's imagination can exist and be just as alive as they believe it to be.
