Suji who was featured 2 times on our website before now coming with us in an interview to share her thought about film photography.
Hi Suji Park, can you tell us more about you?
I'm 24 years old and based in South Korea. I studied Marketing in USA. Photography completely captivated my heart but I also adore cooking, historical 80s-90s films and things that are eco-friendly, handmade or vintage.
Why do you shoot film in this digital age?
Digital is great but it lacks my kind of sentiments. By using films, I somehow feel like being connected to times I have never known and it evokes me feelings of nostalgia. And being able to experiment in numerous ways, it is something very attractive about analogue.
Do you have any projects in future in photography?
For the moment I don't have special projects about works but a few weeks ago, I made a little zine with my images. I ordered only a few copies to give to people I know. Probably I will have it printed in a larger quantity and place them in several book stores.
Do you have a special memory in your career?
Every process of shootings I have done stays strong in my memory.
What gives you inspiration?
A lot! Rimbaud, Rilke in poetry, dreams, specific music pieces, innocence, romanticism, astronomy, nostalgia, light, .. the list goes on.
What can you say to people who want to try analogue. Any tips?
I guess people should not be afraid to try and don't be discouraged by mistakes.
Suji, Thanks a lot for the interview!
