Korean photographer Seung-Hwan Oh began experimenting with mold and film after reading a BBC article about it. He takes photos and stores the film in a warm and wet environment to encourage fungi to grow. Apparently only one out of ever 500 frames of medium format color reversal film turns out properly so it’s a rather expensive creative process. Take a look at more images from his series “Impermanence” below.

These images by Korean artist Jee Young Lee win the award for most elaborate self-portraits created without any digital manipulation. The artist spends several weeks at a time transforming her studio space into these incredible sets inspired by events from her life or Korean fables.
Jee Young Lee is the designer, performer, and photographer. She does everything! I do find it a bit sad though, that after all her hard work we can only experience these as flat images.

Andy Knowlton is an American poet living in Korea. He makes little dolls out of materials he finds on the street and hides them all over the Itaewon neighborhood of Seoul. Each doll holds a bottle, and each bottle has a poem he’s written inside it. Really love this idea! Watch the video below!
