Baeksa Moon Village

‘Baeksa Village’ describes the fragile state of an old community facing radical change. The last of the ‘Moontowns’, or informal settlements ofSouth Korea’s capital Seoul, Baeksa Village is about to be redeveloped.

Shot over a course of a winter’s day, the few remaining residents, many of them aged and struggling to climb the steep hillsides, seem to be hiding in the alleyways, only occasionally appearing from their self made homes into the cold.
