“The sum of what I saw with the screen/with the naked eye/telescope
Rather than gathering the scenery into one scene
It just widens the sight-lag” - Minji Yi

Aprilsnow's 15th book, To bury the dog properly is a collection of artist's two series‘light volume’ and ‘sight-lag’(2017~2019)

The first half of the book contains 'sight-lag', and the second half contains 'light volume'. Each series is loosely divided into different basis weights and editing methods. In particular, in the case of 'light volume', the folding method of the printed surface was used as a device for interpreting artist's 'sight-lag', which can be called the core concept of her work. Photos that do not capture the full representation appear scattered into fragments, then disappear, then reappear and volatilize.

The title of this book, “At that time, I thought it was important to bury the dog properly” is quoted from Louise Bourgeois's interview on GQ Korea's website (Posted on October 28, 2008).

This is a sentence from (Editor Park Jung-min).

Aprilsnow Press is a small publishing house based in Daegu, Korea. Launched in the year 2013, it publishes a small number of books per year, mostly photobooks. Run by design writer Kay Jun and book designer Jeong Jae-wan, Aprilsnow Press evolves around three keywords; photography, text and design. Having background in graphic design, both Kay Jun and Jeong Jaewan see publishing as part of their project of questioning the relationship between photography, text and design. Each book published by Aprilsnow Press is thus interpreted as a live platform of practicing the relationship of these three keywords.
