A Shot in the Dark: Koran Military Brides in America, 2010

Archival inkjet print 11 x 14 in,
Photobook
The project portrays Korean women who have immigrated to the United States after marrying American soldiers since the outbreak of the Korean War in 1950 to current. The photographs are not only of the Korean women themselves, but also of the insides of their homes, capturing places and objects that give a hint of military culture, and of both Korean and American cultures. I wanted to observe their lives and to understand their perspective on American culture and these photographs and interviews became a means for me to do so.
