Multiple Dualities

Michael Hurt,

Extract from article:
The background for this picture [above] is, both figuratively and literally, Korean traditional culture. On a photo shoot for an event sponsored by the Korean Senior Public Diplomacy group as part of their effort to highlight UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites in Korea to non-Koreans — this time at Namhansan Fortress —I had the idea to visually highlight Korean traditional culture as signified by the Namhansan Fortress structure and contrast that with Korean contemporary culture as conveyed through the two trendy young Korean women striking street fashion portrait poses in their Adidas and Nike Air Jordan sneakers, which have recently come back into vogue in Seoul.
