Yang, Seungwook

Seungwook Yang has been taking photos with the doubts that I have about his daily life. Yang snapped the scenes of toys, hoarders, his family members’ death, and the local cities on the verge of development. He has also worked with gender issues and gay subcultures. All of those are still challenging me more or less,
and Yang is trying to figure out the connective points among them or the comprehensive answers for the doubts.
