“Duplex City” predominantly focuses on the residents and streets of the neighbourhood of Haebangchon (Freedom Village) in Seoul, Korea. Once a refuge for North Koreans after the Korean War, today Haebangchon is home to a large expat community (made up of South-East Asians, Eastern Europeans, Africans, North Americans etc.). The photographs in this book are observations I’ve made over the past few years that I’ve been living in the area. The book deals with themes of identity, freedom/barriers, and impermanence.
