The exhibition “Greetings from South Korea,” which consists of three parts: "Limb Eung-Sik: History Through the Lens", "Reinventing Our Time” and "Same Seasons, Different Memories” The three shows work in conjunction to present a multifacted look of Korean photography in three different periods. “History Through the Lens” presents a documentary look at changes in Korean society in the mid-20th century. “Reinventing Our Time” includes photographers who consciously re-explored Korean humanities and aesthetics after World War II, incorporating influences from the West. And “Same Seasons, Different Memories” focuses on contemporary photography in South Korea – How the young generation freely express themselves through photography right now.
