HARU HARU / BAK SOYOUNG

Name:
Soyoung Bak

Three words that describe me:
Simple, curious, open-minded

What’s for breakfast?
I always eat breakfast. Normally in Korea we eat rice and side dishes. I’m dieting for 365 days in a year, haha!

Favorite moment of the day?
1am. Right now. Everything ia silent and my habit is to drink coffee. I may stay up very late.

Dream camera?
Next camera. I change my mind from time to time.

Favorite city/neighborhood?
Seoul. I like the scene of high buildings and traditional roofs. I don’t think my favorite city is going to change if there is Han River, Seoul Tower and many palaces. Perhaps when I get to visit Jeju it can change. In the spring and autumn I enjoy visiting temples. I’m always surprised how the nature can heal you.

If you were a tree, what tree would you be?
Birch in a snow-capped mountains, white birch. I like winter.

Stripes, polka dots or plain?
First stripes, however in recent years I have more interested in the plain

Three words that describe me
wHungry, crazy, funny…

What’s for breakfast
Omelet, toast topped with butter, marmalade and salt and a cup of Rooibos tea. This is the breakfast I make for myself on the weekends. It’s kind of a ritual for me.

Favorite moment of the day
I guess this sound’s a bit cheesy because I’m a photographer but depending on the season but around 6-8 pm when the sun setting. Or really early in the morning is nice too if I’m fully rested.

Dream camera
Maybe a Mamiya 7 II with a digital back. Or just a digital back for the medium format camera I currently use.

Favorite city/neighborhood
I try and visit Gwangjang market at least once every two weeks. My grandmother had a restaurant there for 20 years and the place just feels very comfortable. So many good places to eat at, vintage clothing stores, a baking market across the street, and lots of things and people to take pictures of.

If you were a tree, what tree would you be
A Christmas tree. Loved then used, abused and finally thrown away haha ;P.

Stripes, polka dots or plain
Striped shirts, polka dot bandanas, and plain jeans.

Haru Haru / Nina Ahn

We are excited to present a new WOWSAN series called “Haru Haru” which means “day by day” in Korean. In this series we ask our favorite photographers to interpret the theme in form of photographs. Without further ado, enjoy the first Haru Haru entry.

Name
Nina Ahn

Three words that describe me
Spiral (passionate), mirror (introspective), spiritual

What’s for breakfast
Actually I could barely have breakfast when I was in Seoul. Almost every morning I was so busy to
start the work early. I didn’t even live with my parents as my friends did, so I naturally started skipping my breakfast.
Now I’m staying in Istanbul, Turkey for travel and don’t work everyday so I’m free. This morning I had fried egg and kimchi (which I made by myself in Turkey, I can’t live without kimchi) and stir-fried mushroom, pickled pepper and rice (bab). I have a slim figure but I eat a lot so my boyfriend named me bob-monster!

Favorite moment of the day
About 2 or 3 o’clock. At this time, I turn on the music at a whim in my room and write something I suddenly thought.

Dream camera
I used Yashica T4 for last 2 years, it got unluckily broken. I think Yashica T4 suited me even though my boyfriend is trying to buy me Leica M6. He thinks Leica is the best camera for a photographer.

Favorite city/neighborhood
In Korea, of course the first is Seoul which is full of energy and passion. But sometimes I was terrified of falling behind in that battle field. Basically I love and hate this kind of tension from Seoul. But whenever I faced a mental crisis and was sick and tired of mean competition my favorite place changed to Jeju Island.

If you were a tree, what tree would you be
Absolutely magnolias, I admire white magnolia in the spring season.

Stripes, polka dots or plain
l’d rather talk about floral patterned item.:)
