Starting over

Jeonga was married to one of my closest friends for ten years. She’s a person of great strength, bravery and genuine individuality. In her early 20s, knowing little English, Jeonga moved from South Korea to Australia. Early on she was reserved and quiet, but little by little the real Jeonga emerged. Fearless, creative, and outspoken. As a fashion designer her eye for detail is exceptional, as are her creations. After her marriage ended Jeonga moved from Sydney to Berlin, a city where artists from all over the world flock to live and work. It was while I was living in Europe that I visited Jeonga and shadowed her with my camera for a week, capturing the beginnings of her new life. Here I saw a person who had been through so much and was now resurfacing stronger than ever.
