The locations where he took pictures of a border never have an actual line. In Korea, a boundary meant frozen territory, a forbidden zone, a line between life and death involved an extreme tension, especially at night. Simultaneously, it was a picturesque landscape beyond the border.
By taking a picture of transitional areas at night, he puts in some of the emotional tension that he gained from his memories.
