Not Your Playground
December 2016 - January 2018
I documented news articles about the domestic political upheaval revolving around the candlelight revolution and the impeachment of the president of South Korea and the war crisis of the Korean peninsula exacerbated by the escalating tension between North Korea and the United States over the last few years.
I am interested in investigating how socio-political conditions and the global power structure affect individuals' lives. With these prints, I intend to focus on the fact that numerous people's lives can be changed and determined by a few people with power.
As a person living in South Korea, the sudden political changes deeply unsettled me. It reminded me that I live in such an uncertain world and that my own destiny could be determined by outer forces against my will.
To produce my personal documentation of this series of political turmoils that engulfed many, I deliberately chose the news articles that bring attention to the issues.
