The reason I moved to Korea was to be with the person pictured in this series. I met her while I was traveling; she was also of Korean ethnicity but from a different country like myself. We broke up over the summer of 2010 and I haven’t had the chance to think about our relationship until now, when I started compiling photos for this series.
Out of all the photos I took of her I noticed that in the majority of them she tried to make the photo “unusable” by hiding from the camera. At the time it was a little frustrating – but now, looking back, I realized that those moments were some of the most poignant.
