Jang Minseung’s Black Sunset (2012 – 2017) is a photograph calmly capturing moments of sunset in a black and white gradation. With a composition excluding entire information about the space, the scenery is generalized to ‘an anonymous space’ or ‘an anonymous sea’. It ultimately encourages an audience to pay more attention to its foundation and protoplasm. As the sea landscape is delicately depicted in a black and white gradation and an extremely moderated mode, it is re-generated into an independent subject appealing only visual receptors with a sense of narratives intended by the artist.
