From the publisher: "This new monograph on Boo Moon, one of Korea's great contemporary photographers, takes the form of a visual narrative. The book is divided into three sections: Land, Sea, and Sky. The urban landscapes range from stiflingly lush green forests to razed construction sites, all of which succumb to heavy winter snows. Subtle changes in perspective show an ongoing battle between sunlight and clouds over a bottomless sea -- and the camera slowly pulls away to the safety of the sky. Taken from the skies, the final photographs point away from the earth and towards the comfort and terror of infinity. Essays by Taro Amano and Shino Kuraishi."
