Signs of Spring
My young daughter joyfully put into practice her newly adopted awareness of the signs of spring. The elements that she found did not show spring so much as suggest it. But there was also a sense that almost anything that Ipseh referred to could be a sign of the season in which she found it. These photographs are signs of spring because first and foremost they were taken during spring and their qualities have less to do with that time and more to do with the colours, tonality, lines and shapes that the print's surface has in common with that time and place. This is oblique story telling of what it was like to move through Korea that spring.
