These self portraits by Ahn Jun bring to mind the skywalking trend and capture the dizzying energy of modern skyscrapers. Jun uses the unsettling power of heights to grab our attention, but it’s the details that really captivate as she plays with the contrast of soft, silky fabric and the hard, industrial backdrop of an urban setting. Her delicate figure appears young and helpless as she balances precariously in the ledges of different tall buildings.
Jun recently graduated from Parsons The New School for Design with an MFA in Photography and was named as one of BJP’s 20 photographers to watch in 2013.
