Tilt shift photograph of Jeongneung, my small neighborhood in Seoul, from Global Grasshopper. Nice.
Held at the Daelim Contemporary Art Museum, Karl Lagerfeld: A Work in Progress, was exactly that: a whole lot of Karl, stunning faces, fabulous Chanel and plenty of Yoko Ono. The space was beautiful and the Koreans in attendance were equally so. Nothing groundbreaking, but a nice experience nevertheless. Exhibit runs through March 18th. Admission is only 5,000W.
Bus line is by far the craziest part of my day. At 2:20 pm, 15 classes filled with preschoolers furiously rush out of their classroom to their bus line. Ooofta! We count our kids and fly down 3 steep flights of stairs. It’s only sheer, dumb luck that they don’t tumble head first down the stairs. Then, they sprint out the doors to their bus. It’s quite a spectacle.
Every month, we have a preschool birthday party for all of the students whose birthday it is that month. Each class memorizes a song and dance to perform at the birthday party. The girls get all gussied up. It’s pretty cute.
The Holga begins to take on my daily life in Korea. These photographs were taken in the areas immediately surrounding my place of work, Sungbuk SLP. Alleys of traditional Korean homes are juxtaposed with modern, towering apartment and office buildings.
The tall building in the background is the building that houses Sungbuk SLP. We occupy one floor of a large office building.
Jesus pamphlets are everywhere. crosses are everywhere. From the roof of my apartment building alone, I can see 16 neon crosses.
These blue boxes baffle me! They come out when it snows… to fill with snow? Not much snow would fit in the box. Not to mention, you put the snow in the box… and then what?
This is my bus stop across from my apartment in Jeongneung.
A role of highly inebriated, mostly black film, one decently interesting photograph from Crystal Castles and a creeper shot of girls waiting in line to go to the bathroom. Weird.
Jeongneung, Sungbuk-gu, Seoul, Korea. The view from my apartment.
I went to go pick up two rolls of holga film, thinking they were both from a music festival… but no! There was a roll from Thailand! Beautiful, stunning pictures of Thailand. I won’t bore you with same-same pictures … so here are a few of the most interesting. For the rest of my surprise role, head to my flickr!
