Yeondoo Jung's Photos from Crayon Drawings

Brian

South Korean photographer Yeondoo Jung's series Wonderland (via BoingBoing) attempts to recreate the fantastic euphoria of young children's crayon artwork. The gallery that showed the series a few years back explains how Jung executed his vision:
[The series] presents costumed adolescents posing in sets based as closely as possible on children's drawings. He collaborates with many people to bring to life the boundless imagination in the drawings. For four months, Jung oversaw art classes in four kindergartens in Seoul and collected 1,200 drawings by children between the ages of five and seven. After pouring through them, he carefully selected 17 drawings and interpreted their meanings. Then he recruited 60 high school students by passing out handbills at their schools in which he invited them to act out the scenarios in the children's drawings. In order to recreate faithfully drawing details such as dresses with uneven sleeves or buttons of different sizes, he convinced five fashion designers to custom make the clothing for the photo shoot. He also made props unlike any scale found in reality but similar to those in the drawings.
Link. Jung's mother is proud enough to hang the work on her fridge.

An interesting Korean project that reenacts children’s drawing and turn their fantasies into the real world.dominical costa rica tours
This photography art is the work of Yeon Doo Jung who is one of Korea’s outstanding photo artist.Check out more of this great project with 16 more pics after the jump.Jung painstakingly gives photographic form to disembodied dreams, inspiring our sense of wonder and respect for his representation of the terrible freedom of a child’s unbridled ideas or the nascent power of an adolescent’s dreams. The impenetrable borders and the fusion points between reality and fantasy converge smoothly in Jung’s photos, inviting us into a new visual world of emotion and desire.
