Trivial Tragedies | Minor Stories of Urban Redemption 
Trivial Tragedies looks at the urban space on a micro level.This is a collection of found still lifes in the public and semi-public spaces of Korea.They highlight discarded or seemingly incongruous objects and spaces whose former glory is long lost.The unexpected juxtaposition of these objects and the places they inhabit gives way to narratives that raise questions about their origins and use. Although these objects are in public spaces they were mostly found tucked away in alleyways and rooftops, coming together—if not exactly hidden—away from public scrutiny.These scenes have been ignored and forgotten rather than actively casted away.The photographs are an attempt to bring attention to anonymous stories, in order to forge connections and engage the environment that surrounds us and that is so easy to ignore.
