Every city has a hundred faces. Seoul is no different. This series really has no particular story attached to it, rather it is part of my wanderings in this Asian megacity that I've called home for some years now. Looking over I feel there is a rather dark tone, I guess this somewhat reflects the inner workings of my mind over this period where a lot of personal demons plagued my thoughts. Photographing and wandering the city, in a way, was cathartic.
