Technical Art of Photography, National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Gwacheon

Photography has evolved from a photochemical technique that is completed through a machine called a camera. Painting technical characteristics without incurring the balls rather more realistic target by the record, the picture in the history back and forth between the ‘artistic expressiveness “and” archival capabilities of the facts’ did catch itself as a medium to explore various possibilities.

It wasn’t until 1910 that it was recognized as a form of art because of the nature that photography was invented in the 1830 ‘s, not through the artist’s hand, but through a machine. But rather the writers are maximizing the artistry of the picture by utilizing the mechanical characteristics of the picture and, by introducing a variety of techniques have been suggested another possibility of art.

From a technical point of view, photography can be divided into the moment when an object is captured and the moment it is developed, printed and settled on a plane. In this process, artists have pioneered new areas, attempting unique and experimental works, paying attention to the media and technical characteristics of photography. In particular, with the development of various digital media, modern photography has become a powerful tool that enables a whole new visual experience rather than simple recording or reproduction. Also it suggests using objective archival capabilities for picture prerequisites like a space of existence the ‘fantastic’ room absolutely can not exist in reality, a variety of camera techniques and phenomena, they cause transformed into a space for real use for printing techniques to space fantasy inside.

This exhibition examines the technical experiments that took place in the area of photography, focusing on the works of Korean contemporary photography, which are held by the National Museum of Contemporary Art. 1960 During the time’s up from the current technical meaning of the photos appeared in Korea photographers, pay attention to the legal group to try and, to this explore the various aspects of contemporary photography through will be an opportunity to more deeply understand the picture the media.

Technology of shooting
Based on an understanding of the basic principles of cameras using light and the chemicals that react to them, the authors conducted a number of technical experiments. Even the gamgwangpan that respond to light study how holds the shape of the object directly, without going through the lens taken out camera, also shows that the human eye and the camera lens efforts to overcome the differences that occur in the process of recognizing objects and, also find it upsetting the faith fully directed scene that captures an image of the external reality through the lens is always decorated like a real catch. The artists began to suggest a variety of shooting techniques in order to capture unique concepts and ideas beyond simply capturing the form of objects in photography.

Darkroom technology
In analog photography, most of the phenomena and prints are taken in the darkroom except for photography. Through various techniques applied in the process of phenomena and prints, photographs can cross the boundaries of paintings and add operations that are only possible at the stage of photography to reproduce scenes that are impossible in reality.

Namely skill
Myeong-sil is a concept of a ‘bright room’ as opposed to a dark room, which is a ‘dark room’, which means a space where post-processing is performed after a photograph is developed and printed. Activity in a bright room until you have a digital camera and Photoshop appeared already developed, check your prints or simple pasting clippings, because it ceased to simple operations such as drawing on a photo not receive attention in the space of a decisive role in the completion of works Could not. But now, digital cameras, and the process is omitted in the dark with the development of Photoshop, it has come an era damaging a decisive influence on the work process after taking place in a bright room. Most photographs exist as data that has been corrected and digitized by computer programs without going through the darkroom. In addition to the tools of free expression brought by computer programs, photography also explored infinite possibilities.

The way you present your pictures is now beyond the plane.
