New A Life, Still Submission!

My photography series called, Another Me, takes my love of fantastical stories to open my mind in exploring my Korean heritage. I utilize traditional Korean folk-stories as inspiration behind my photo-illustrations. These images serve as a confrontation of something I have always tried to suppress because of ignorance, embarrassment and shame growing up outside of my birth country. My transient placement in the imagery acts as a connection to my Korean heritage as I interact with traditional Korean characters. By allowing my use of imagination to create a new reality, I create images that speak from buried past emotions and newly founded acceptance. My visually stimulating imagery will create an experience for any audience to open their minds to new possibilities.
