With miles of concrete, asphalt, people, and cars in any given direction, Seoul can be a pretty overwhelming place at times. Given that that we are working on a documentary so deeply connected with nature, it’s nice to get out of the ‘office’ in the city and into a natural setting.
This week, I went for a morning walk before meeting Suhee and getting to work on translation and development of our trailer.
It started innocently as a walk up the mountain near my goshiwan (the tiny bedroom where I am staying, more on this later) and turned into me getting a bit lost due to a massive construction project which blocked half of the paths from the mountain, and being followed up the side of the mountain by a cautious construction-site security guard and three guard dogs. Needless to say, I was a little late for work that day.
Well, it did turn into some nice photographs, some of which may find their way into my Disgeotic photo series… looking at urbanism through the nature which surrounds it.
They’re kind of serene, in their own special way…
