These photographs were made across the Korean peninsula over the course of three summers. Their timeline closely overlays with the coming and going of the monsoon season, which acted as both a temporal framework and an extended metaphor for the series.

Within these scenes, the presence of the weather evokes the unique intensity that permeates contemporary Korean society. Pictures flow into one another, drawing attention to the confluence of past and present, the scale and density of the megacity, the respite of the natural landscape, a steep imbalance of gender roles, careful preservation of tradition, the obsessive pursuit of aesthetic perfection, immersion in materialistic culture, the comfort and confines of a collective ideology, and moments of everyday life and labor that quietly suggest sentiments of desire, struggle, and tranquility.
