Ahn Sungseok was born in South Korea in 1985. He graduated from the Sangmyun Univeristy with a degree in Photography and visual media. His artist practice consists of him synthesizing or juxtaposing two spaces on one photograph for his own special experiences producing an accidental “deja-vu” like image. The memories in Ahn’s head meet new images in reality creating two different time periods. When searching for inspiration for his work, he looks for things whose surroundings have been changed, but have not lost their original form and cultural heritage itself have remained unchanged.
