Seung-Hwan Oh is an experimental photographer and microbiologist working in Seoul, South Korea. In his recent series, Impermanence, “…he cultivates fungus that he applies to his film. Through this process, the microorganisms slowly devour the film…the intended result is what appears through disappearance…”. Having worked on this series for over 3 years, Hwan Oh has been able to carefully control the fungus specimens as they eat away at the film, the images are at once magical and frightening, as the deep blues and striking silvers gnaw away and fracture human figures and faces. Within the decay appears a certain sense of majesty as art and science intersect to create some seriously stunning and psychedelic pieces.
