“DE MA FENETRE” is the real title of the exhibit.
AHAE is a70 years old Korean naturalist and photographer, owner of a number of companies, maybe not as well known as Hyundai but still, quite a magnate. But a magnate of another kind: AHAE mainly stands in front of the same window, in his studio, in the countryside south of Seoul. What for?
The answer, you will find it in the JARDIN DES TUILERIES:
AHAE has taken over one million pictures out of his single window over the past 2 years, this means between, 2000, 3000 pictures a day, man! He calls them his “true” pictures. A strong and intense love for nature is obvious enough.
This fantastic artist has bought an entire little hamlet, abandonned in the heart of the Limousin area in France for long. I am eager to see in the near future the wonder AHAE is going to make of this far-off place, so secluded in the midst of untouched nature.
