South Korea

Gimme Shelter

Gimme Shelter

This image was made on my final day of my On-The-Road series, a 17-day, multi-city tour of peninsular South Korea. For the last day, I was caught in torrential downpours in the Seoraksan National Park as the heavens opened. I managed to seek refuge in Sinheung-sa grotto, carved into the rocks of Ulsanbawi. The monks here served me green tea and allowed me to rest in the grotto while the rain died down. I'm going to use this as my once chance to name an image after The Rolling Stones song, 'Gimme Shelter.'

Over-the-Top

Over-the-Top

This is an image I made during a week-long stay in Seoul back in October. This particular shot focuses on wealthy Korea. It is entitled "Over-the-top" as I find this is a phrase that can often be applied to Korean opulence, but also because I had to climb and lean over-the-top o the glass safety barrier at Seoul N Tower to make the shot.

I love the part that friendship and camaraderie plays in Korean society, even well into old-age. This particular band of merry men were sat enjoying the crisp fall weather in Gwangju's Pureungil Park.
