The Korean Cultural Centre (KCC) Australia is presenting a new photo exhibition Light Shadow: Koo Bohnchang as part of the Head On Photo Festival this year.

Featuring 39 photography works, Light Shadow captures the moment of encounter between baekja (_white porcelain) and _dal hang-ari (moon jar) of the Joseon Dynasty (1392–1910), a camera and an artist.

South Korea’s leading photographer, Koo Bohnchang embarked on a journey in search of Korean baekja scattered all over the world in different museums. For more than 30 years, he has been a pioneer and leader of modern Korean photography.

Baekja was the defining nature of the craft during the Joseon Dynasty. Royal and noble families preferred pure white surfaces and humble shapes compared to extravagant patterns and decorations. In particular, dal hang-ari which is considered to best represent the essence of Joseon white porcelain, is regarded as one of the greatest embodiment of Korean beauty and spirit through its pure white hue and round formations.

IMPORTANT NOTICE
