Grand Prize Winner
[Seoul, South Korea] While walking in Samcheong-dong, Seoul, I encountered these two Koreans, both artists. I thought they would be the perfect subjects for current fashion trends here in Korea. Vests seem to be rising in popularity, especially among young men. Coupled with a regular T-shirt, the combination makes an interesting play on the contradiction between business and casual. Even though it was a cloudy day, the man in the foreground wore sunglasses, perhaps a nod to Italian and European influences. Few men sport un-shaven faces, but some have very thin mustaches and light, sculpted facial hair.

What a brilliant photo and inspiring photographer- I googled him..and wow is this guy intense!! Crazy awesome stuff he does- I'm looking forward to seeing more of his work! Not to mention his family.. You have to see for yourself rather than hear someone rant about it.

Woops- I thought the comments were just on the winning one- I'm referring to Miko Walczuk as the photographer from the last comment.
