Complex Simplicity

Some art pieces are beautiful because of their refined simplicity, while other captivate because because of their intricateness. Rarely I have seen pieces that combines the two in a perfect equilibrium, but the pictures taken by Kim Kyung Soo for Vogue Korea (oct.2007) are a great example of a funambulistous art situated at the border of simplicity and complexity.

The girls are wearing traditionnal korean dresses called han bok. I found those pictures on a blog called Automatism.

The style of these photographies makes me think of Shan Sa's writing style: simple yet powerful, with the distinct parfume of Asia.  I strongly recommand her book " The Girl who Played Go".
