Jason Teale blogged about the Photo & Imaging Expo, as I have done here and here, but he also has pictures of it, including the group photo mentioned before. He has a very nice blog, and I seldom come away from reading it without having learned something.

Politics, December 2012
I took this photo a couple of weeks before the election last year so it constitutes something like an historical document now. Continue reading
Dark City 3
As mentioned in the previous installment of ‘notes,’ I had a picture in an exhibition last weekend here in Seoul. Also as mentioned, I wasn’t the only one, and one of the reasons I absconded a bit early from my photography workshop last Sunday was to scoot my sweet patootie on over to COEX Mall and pick up the print that had been made of the thing. Another reason was that I had a feeling I’d get to meet some of the folk whose work I have been following and learning from over the past few years since I picked up this hobby / addiction.
Of course, bumper cars had not been my intention that day. Had I known it was going to be a day for bumper cars, I might have planned things differently. But, who expects such things as bumper cars? I sure don’t.
Fortunately, I like surprises.
Daepo ( 대포 )
A few weeks ago I submitted a couple of photos to an exhibition here in Seoul that will open today as part of Photo & Imaging 2014 at the COEX Mall in Gangnam. It was the first time I had ever done such a thing and I was very pleased that one of them (above) was chosen to hang next to 49 others, all done by local photographers in the expatriate community whose work shows their mad skills, and whom I’ve followed and learned from over the past couple of years.
At night, it’s a different world. That’s what the song says, anyway. And it’s true.
It’s nothing to be afraid of, though. The darkness protects us just as much as it conceals the lurking fiend. Sometimes we can see what is there more clearly because we are not distracted by what is there to be seen. What the darkness has to tell us is that what we see is not all there is. That should be obvious, but in the harsh light of day we do so often lull ourselves into thinking we see everything and understand all of what we see.
