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.'

Friends Like These

Friends Like These

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.

The Fastest of Food

The Fastest of Food

A South Korean delivery driver tears through an intersection, Tongyeong, South Gyeongsang Province.

These fast-food delivery bikes are always zipping around at breakneck speed, blazing through red lights, etc. I knew to capture their essence, I'd need to show a sense of that motion in my imagery. I thought panning would be the best way to achieve that.
