For Jun Ahn the elimination of context is the most fascinating aspect of a photographic image. Photography is reality and fantasy, truth and fiction, all at the same time. She wants to discover the invisible moment, the invisible structure and hidden beauty of a world that only can be seen through the lenses of a camera. She says, 'The world is where illusion and reality constantly meet and collide.' And photography is just the right technique to capture and show the world because 'photos are the best medium to bring an illusion to reality as it is.' Ahn's photographic works describe our everyday lives as situated on the border between an illusion and reality. That is why her body and view dangerously stand on the edge. She hones the knife of nervousness, of the moment.
