Out Of The Rubble


The story of Han Young-soo, the photographer who put a face on the struggles and triumphs of post-war South Korea:
"Poverty, devastation, division, disarray, hopelessness and bleakness are often what are associated with Korea reeling from the Korean War (1950-53).
But that was not the case in the eyes of photographer Han Youngsoo.
In the desolate landscape of postwar Korea, he captured modern sophistication from people’s everyday lives and their facial expressions. 
This is perhaps why although about 60 years have passed, his photographs remain so stunning."
Do click through to JoongAng Daily for images, but an even better source for his amazing photography is here.
