Junyoung Seo, a photographer, was born in Busan, South Korea.
Majoring in architecture and beginning taking pictures since 2001, he started to be interested in documentary and photo journalism after he met Mr. Honghee Kim in 2007, who was chosen as the world’s 20 photographers by Nikon.
He doesn’t want his problems to be mentioned by others. He is the typical 21st artist. He has a lot of concern for the relationship or connectivity between a private documentary covering individual’s inner side and a public one dealing with the social issues.
He is unfolding his story, which is seldom covered with by the traditional documentary, giving prominence to the social problems. His major work, ‘Theme Park’, describes despair he feels as a salary man and contradiction of capitalism.
This method has individual’s emotions and depth of introspection in contrast with the traditional documentary composed of some interviews by people.
He is not merely a photographer but a photographer, subject, and explainer at the same time.
