About the Work

About the Work


Kim Taedong has received a lot of attention for his ‘Day Break’ (2011~ ) series, which expresses the strange atmosphere evoked by the urban space at dawn. After midnight the city illuminated only by artificial light becomes a stage different from the lively daytime routine.

He wanders around Seoul at nighttime for filming inspiration, selects an appropriate place, and invites passerbies who suddenly appear in his filming and asks them for a pose. The people who come out in his photography are normal people who pass by during his art activities.
