The Intimacy of Making – Three Historical Sites in Korea

The Swiss French photographer Hélène Binet takes us on a visual journey through a world of stone, walls and gardens that define and celebrate Korean art. The Intimacy of Making captures the traditional Korean architecture of three historical sites. Her camera work brings together both nature and the built structures, and reveals the souls of the three places. The purity of Hélène's photographic motifs sharpens one’s eye for the often-overlooked beauty and harmony in the built environment, as well as the care for craft and composition. This book is a reminder of our often fleeting and careless perceptions. The images and their arrangement in the book create a journey through invisible elements and take us into a world full of new compositions.
