A view from a beach bunker on south korea's yeonpyeong island, just 12 km south of the coast of north korea's hwanghae province. on november 23, 2010, north korean artillery shelled yeonpyeong island following south korean military exercises in the area. i was here in 2010 to photograph the aftermath of that attack. i’ve have come back this week to continue my project on the divided korean peninsula.

The 14th century royal palace is surrounded by bright, bold, modern seoul and is an example of the beauty and might of korean culture. these young girls and a boy were taiwanese tourists like me walking the palace grounds and making selfies like most visitors. i loved that they came dressed in this way, seemingly to show respect for the importance, history and beauty. non-smartphone. #gyeongbokgung, #hanbok, #palace, #visitseoul, #iseoulu, #seoul, #sponsored
