- The resistance to "Oblivion Terror" -


Daguerreotype process was the first practicable method of obtaining permanent images with a camera, in short, the first practicable photographic process in the history of the photography. It dates back to 1839.

This first photographic process requires very hazardous chemicals and it is extremely stern steps to make a silver plate sensitive to light. In addition, produced images are very fragile. However, they are simply marvellous. It seems like just life.

All living things leave offsprings. This is the principle of all living things. We are so fragile that we hope to leave offspring as a trace of self. However, only human beings have another factor why to do so, which is ego. Our egos resist from fading into oblivion. 

 In this fear of oblivion, Neanderthal man would have made a practice of burial. At the same time of acquiring a good memory skill, they encountered a fear of fading memories. Since this encounter, our egos started resisting "Oblivion Terror".

I believe that this unconscious tide constituted the source of photography. Our egos always crave for existence, immortality, and trace of oneself after death, and photography fills the craving.

 

The elementary particles of light "Photon" touched on me and created the image on the silver plate. I truly exist because my retina can sense the image created by the Photon. And one day, I will be said that he truly existed from people who see the image on the plate. Because, this image gets aged along with me yet it will keep alive after I am dead. I achieved this such very first self-portrait daguerreotype image by all my hand-made equipment. That was the most ineffable ecstasy ever in photographer life.[/fade]

[fade]She assisted me with my Daguerreotype work and also learned it under me.
Now she has able to produce a Daguerreotype photograph by herself.
Probably, she is the first korean Daguerreotypist.
The following Daguerreotype images were made by her.
