The exhibition portrait:portrait is presenting two Korean photographers, who are working in different manners with the ´portrait´ and who´s series shown in the PRÜSS & OCHS GALLERY are based on the idea of dialogues.

Lim Young Kyun, born 1955 and living in Seoul, chooses for his large-sized works the arthistorical traditional form of portrait also used in the passeport-photography. His female and male modells are looking as neutral as ocular, contemplative as interrogative into the camera. The images are sharp and focused on the face especially the eyes; the young Korean woman and men seem to watch back out of the photographies, watch through us fixing onto a point far behind us.

Lims dialogue develops a meditative situation with his vice-versa and he catches the enicmatical moment.

Carmen Böker wrote about them in the ‚Berliner Zeitung’ : ... the faces lack of all movement, seem as statues, not in their unvulnarableness but in their expression of Wu Wei, the devotion at the karma, which 12 levels have to be overcome.
Pictures from his serie ‚Face of our Time’ were exhibited in Berlin and New York in the show ‚Translated Acts’ (Haus der Kulturen der Welt, 2001; Queens Museum of Art, 2002).
