‘Imagine a house without windows.
No light, no wind,
And no view.’

Blocks is a collection of poster-style photographs by Chanmin Park. Park’s work involves studying Korean apartments and Scottish public housing, and deliberately erasing the windows of Scottish houses he has taken pictures of. Through ‘windowless houses’, the artist criticizes the block-like uniformity and blocked-off nature of modern housing. This title contains 26 photographs from his series, Blocks and the booklet “A Photographic Study of 21st Century Housing and Cities” by art critic, Shin Hye-young.

Since its foundation in 2007, Iann has organised a variety of projects ranging from the publication of the contemporary art photography magazine to curating exhibitions, publishing books, and running educational programs.
