Joel Micah Miller: Seoulitude - Finding personal space in a Megacity
Where can you go when you need a calm spot in the world’s second-largest metropolis? This is a difficult question which Seoul’s inhabitants try to answer every day. It’s not a cakewalk to find time and space for yourself among 26 million neighbours in a city with twice the population density of New York and eight times as many inhabitants as Rome.
Joel Micah Miller still managed to give us a very intimate and respectful insight into the free space of Seoul’s residents.
Like a hunter on a deerstand, he catches these dreamy scenes from a distance. Scenes that show the metropolis’ residents just breaking away from the trouble and leaving their cares behind. His pictures transport this tranquillity and serenity to the viewer. That’s why they are so relaxing to look at.
