About the Artist & Project: Serbian & English

Serbian:

Pleksiglas serija je posvećena mestu iz kog potičem. 

Moji roditelji su posedovali “mama i tata prodavnicu pića” u Vašingtonu , za svo to vreme dok sam bio fotograf. Penzionisali su se 2015. pa se i petnaestogodišnji opus završio. Kao dete iz radničke klase korejskih emigranata, pomagao sam u porodičnom bizinisu ali uglavnom iza pregrade od pleksiglasa koja je izrađena zaštite radi. Imao sam utisak da je svaka mušterija iza pleksiglasa spremna da puca. Ove mušterije su teški alkoholičari, zavisnici Loto tiketa, državni službenici, seksulane radnice, studenti ali i deca koja dolaze da kupe slatikiše.Ovo mesto me je upoznalo sa različitim profilima ljudi i pomoglo da izgradim odnos gledajući kroz objektiv kamere. Razmišljajući o prošlosti, porodični posao mi je uvek bio veliki teret ali sam odlazak u radnju radi fotografisanja je bila zabava. To je kao da imate svoj studio u koji vam model dolazi zbog svojih potreba donoseći svoje lične price.

English:

The Plexiglass Series, is an homage to where I come from. 

My parents owned a “mom and pop liquor store” in Washington, D.C. for as long as I have been a photographer. They retired in late 2015 bringing this 15 year body of work to completion. As a child of working-class Korean immigrants, I did my part in the family business--mainly, tending the register behind a wall of plexiglass, a partition built to protect us. I found the customers on the other side of the plexiglass compelling subjects to shoot. These customers are heavy alcoholics, lottery ticket addicts, government employees, sex workers, college students, as well as children who come in to buy candy. This place introduced many characters and helped me build relationships through my camera. Thinking back, it was a huge burden to always have to work with my family but going back to the store to take photos was always fun. It's like having a studio but the sitters come to you and with their purchases, they bring their own personal stories.
