Eclectic or 'eccentric', my background is as diverse as the places I lived since I was adopted from South Korea to Belgium.
Born in Busan in 1968 and adopted when I was 3 years old by a Belgian / French family. I grew up in Brussels (Belgium) and was quickly exposed to different cultures as Brussels 'being a very cosmopolitan city' as well as the center of Europe (E.U./OTAN).
Looking to work in 'fashion capitals', I moved to Paris in 1994 and collaborated with top international model agencies (Women, Marilyn, Metropolitan, Click, etc.). A life-changing visit to re-discover my roots in South Korea back in 1995 for the first time as adult. A year later, I moved from Paris to Seoul and lived/worked there from 1996 to 2010.
*I had a 2 years 'break' during the Asian Financial crisis and lived in New York between end of 1998 and 2000
Since 2010, my globetrotter mindset and nomadic lifestyle, with a special affection for South East Asian countries, made me decide to relocate to Bangkok, Thailand – the hub of travel and tourism industry where I recently opened a multi-function art space/photo studio (SOY SAUCE FACTORY near Rivercity/Chinatown) which will serve as a platform for creativity and a photo studio rental for magazines and advertising clients in Thailand and S.E. Asia.
Also, my lovely house near Phra Khanong is ready to welcome you, where there is another pocket of creative community around Ekkamai/Thonglor with a burgeoning art scene.
Since 2010, I live in Bangkok and travel often around the region: Cambodia or sometimes back to Seoul, whenever I can; visiting China (Shanghai/Beijing), Japan or elsewhere around the world for photography assignments, lectures or special photography workshops.
I regularly teach Photo Workshops in Bangkok and sometimes in Seoul
