A Korean couple in a long distance relationship started a nice photographic project. The union of both partners lives. Whoever said that a relationship couldn’t endure over long distances?
« Out of sight, out of mind», however for Danbi Shin who lives in New York and Seok Li who lives in Séoul (South Korea),this expression has no significance. Even if a long distance relationship is generally difficult, the 11.000 km (14 h flight) which separates the two lovebirds gave them some ideas and initiated the creation of a studio ShinLiArt.
An artistic work in the form of a photo project was launched by the couple. Baptised Half & Half, this project embodied a series of complementary photos between them which represented their daily lives and respective universes.
All the clichés are available on the Instagram account of the Korean couple, who amused themselves by superimposing everything, so that they were united. In this way the photos of food (many) as well as other cliches showing Danbi Shin and Seok Li opposite each other, joining their hands or their faces. The images show the notable differences between two towns, for example the cliches of taxis or other simple juxtapositions of forms. Telephone boxes, restaurant signs, buildings, wall sockets, ampoules, vehicules, fire hydrants- everything goes!
From New York to Seoul, this couple found a way to survive a long distance relationship by doing a photographic project which was a way in which to find a bit of intimacy.
Here are several of the photos from the project Half & Half :
