Petrichor is a photographic project that examines the exploration of my own existence. An untamed horse, the dome of a mottled palace, the silent sea, and a pathway that leads me toward nowhere. All of these visions have constantly revisited me. By recording these scenes which keep appearing in my memories, I am chasing the answer about what the most important thing is in the continuous change of time.
This project comes from my long-term uncertainty about growth and time. I wandered without answers to the question “what am I” for a long time, and I was getting older before I knew it. In this hesitation, I understand that the tension between adulthood and youth stems from self-existence, and my confusion about being a living being in the passage of time can not be replied by time itself but will be answered by staring down the idea of “myself”.
