Special Exhibition - Relation

7th International Photo Festival exhibition of the Republic of Korea was chosen as the theme of "relational person (人) '. In philosophy, the dictionary meaning of relationship (relation) is about two or more objects, and there is 'person' at the center of the relationship. Man is inevitably influenced by 'relationship', whether he wants to be a social animal or not, and lives in a series of events, large and small. In this special exhibition, four photographers, Sang-Woo Ko, Jin-Hee Kim, Jae-Gap Lee, and Beom-Sik Won, will meet various spectrums of portraits through different ideas and insights at the relational level.
