Hanguk is a photographic essay by photographer Florian Bong-Kil Grosse. The series has been self-published. Graphic design by v-a studio.
Hanguk is about my travels to South-Korea, the country I was born in but in fact never visited again since my adult age. It is less the documentation of a country and its inhabitants. Rather, for me the work is a pictorial description of a place that belongs to my own wholly personal imagination. It is the attempt to bring the images of external reality into agreement with those of inner reality.
