HIGH STREET LOW STREET started out as a project to raise money for a new camera by independently publishing a large format print edition of my Seoul street photography.
The photos that made it into the physical edition represent what I, in 2012, thought were my best photographs. However, I’ve noticed that my opinion of my photography has changed and I felt like it was time that I update my book and try to offer a more complete glimpse of my Seoul street photography.
From everyday occurrences to Cosplay and protests, HIGH STREET LOW STREET represents hours of walking, experiencing, and capturing the daily routine, atmosphere, and excitement of Seoul. From the bustling streets of Myeong-dong, Sinsa-dong, Apkujeong-dong, and Gangnam station, to neighborhoods off the beaten track, HIGH STREET LOW STREET exposes Seoul and brings you closer to one of the world’s coolest cities. From Gangnam-gu to Nowon-gu, Dongdaemun-gu to Eunpyeong-gu, Jongno-gu to Yongsan-gu, HIGH STREET LOW STREET does what most brochures and books do not; gives you real and amazing pictures of a city well worth visiting.
This was Seoul from 2008 until 2012.
