STATEMENT 

I am working on the subject of boundaries and success of boundaries.
I am a photographer that directs and sets-up operations that focuses on different points of views, backgrounds, and situations of models with special stories, and create clothes. (for example, in the project of men from the South being handsome and women from the North being beautiful in Korea, North Korean female students were modeled as North Korean defectors and male students were modeled as immigrants in the US).
Therefore, Buenos Aires, Argentina, a country of immigrants with various cultures and stories around the world is the perfect city for a photographer’s creative capacity and inspiration.
