Re: Kim Sookang

Thanks for that description, Loris. I hadn't seen that. Isn't her work incredible? It takes your breath away.

accentuating shades. The accumulation of translucent layers gives
“body” to each print; with each subsequent layer the images
come into being. Each exposure mediates, as it were, an additional trace
of the subject..."

Whoa!? Incredible work, moreso when thinking how it's done! Thanks for
mentioning Diana.
