About the Event

Baik Art is pleased to present Han Youngsoo: When the Spring Wind Blows, an exhibition of works by Korean photographer Han Youngsoo (1933-1999). Co-curated with the Han Youngsoo Foundation and in collaboration with Waave Foundation, the exhibition presents 26 images from Han’s oeuvre, highlighting his nuanced photographs of Korean women from 1956-1963.

Following the destruction of the Korean War, Han captured images of everyday life amidst the transformation of women’s roles in South Korea. The mass casualties of men in the war required women to take charge of businesses and household affairs, making them key players in the rebuilding of post-war South Korea. Han recognized women as the nation’s future, following their everyday lives and activities in the workplace. Unlike other photographers of his time, Han’s images capture the refinement of the post-war era and the human spirit, determined to continue living following total devastation and loss.
