I came across Euljiro, mysterious old quarter of Seoul, a close-knit quarter of warehouses and workshops, where long forgotten by the neighboring habitats; quietly and helplessly engulfed modern development. I spent a week with the habitats from the last remaining two blocks, documenting and capturing the melancholic mood of the impending disappearances. The photos were also a reflection of the importance of remembering our past, before detaching too far away from our future.
