About the artwork

‘Seoul is the fastest changing place I’ve ever seen. It’s shocking really. The turnover in development is so fast it makes my head spin. One day a building will be a cell phone shop and the next an academy. I’ve heard it’s been this way since the war. In terms of the environment itself the urban jungle remains urban.’

Canadian JT White, also known as Josh White, has been living and working in Seoul since 2007. Shortly after arriving in Seoul he began to make photographs, initially to share images with family and friends, but he quickly moved to working full time in photography, publishing zines and sharing his work via his blog and on Instagram. He describes his photographs as a visual diary that documents the street life of Seoul. Describing his work JT White wrote, ‘In street photography, we take photos of small moments in other’s lives. In that instant, a connection is created.’

Megacities

Megacities is an ambitious project bringing the creative vision of ten leading street photographers into dialogue with the urban environment of ten global megacities – cities with a population of more than 10 million people.

With origins in the 1930s, and the advent of 35-millimetre film and handheld cameras, street photography came into its own as photographers became able to move freely and unobtrusively while taking photographs. The result was a dynamic genre of photography centred on the built environment and the behaviour, activity and experiences of urban populations. Street photography extends the descriptive and didactic capacities of photography to the realm of creative, interactive engagement and reflection, and in this project, offers a contemporary account of how we live.

The work of the ten photographers will feature in a dynamic, immersive environment, presenting a thought-provoking vision of the twenty-first century urban phenomenon – the megacity.
