Eclectic or 'eccentric', my background is as diverse as the places I lived since I was adopted from South Korea to Belgium.
Born in South Korea - Busan 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.
Looking to work as Fashion photographer 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, reconnected me to my origins.
A year later, I moved from Paris to Seoul and lived/worked there from 1996 to 2010 (*besides a 2 years 'break' during the Asian Financial crisis and lived in New York City between 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 – a platform of travel and a hub of tourism where multi-cultures meet and clash. Recently I manage a photo gallery space / photo studio and conduct photo workshops. The rooftop space will serve as a platform for creativity and a photo studio (daily) rental for enthusiast photographers, students and professional.
My house is ready to welcome you, in the perfect location between Thonglor, Phra Khanong and Ekkamai, where there is another burgeoning pocket of creative community with new galleries and cafes opening recently.
Since 2010, I live in Bangkok and travel often around the region: Cambodia (or sometimes back to Seoul), whenever I can; visiting this amazing South East Asia region; or elsewhere around the world for photography assignments, lectures or special photography workshops.
I regularly teach Photo Workshops in Bangkok and anywhere in Thailand or South East Asia
