"'The Dot' features 27 black-and-white images from Oreo's eponymous portrait series of young adolescents in Amsterdam and St. Petersburg. Shot during improvised portrait sessions, the images are intimate, timeless yet unmistakably contemporary. For the book, Oreo added three short poetic lines of text." (publisher's note)

About the photographer:
Oreo Jung Min Cho was born and grew up in Seoul (KR). In recent years, she divided her time between Amsterdam, New York and Seoul.
The series THE DOT earned Oreo a degree in photography at Rietveld Academy. Among other shows, it was selected for the 'Best of Graduates 2014' exhibition at Ron Mandos Gallery, Amsterdam.

Das in kleiner Auflage von nur 300 Exemplaren verlegte Buch eines kleinen Hamburger Verlages versammelt 27 Schwarz-Weiss.-Aufnahmen Jugendlicher aus den Niederlanden (Amsterdam) und Russland (St. Petersburg).
Die koreanische Fotografin portraitierte junge Menschen, die - obwohl jung und interessiert - eine Zeit der inneren Suche (Blindheit für äußere Dinge) erleben. Zumindest so verstehe ich den kleinen poetischen Text auf der Rückseite der Publikation: "The Dot, a door to the garden entering it crystals blind, eyes open." (O.J.M.C.)
