<k-phile> Special Trip with Photographer John Steele
The fifth episode of the Arirang TV show "K-Phile", which aims to promote Korean cultural content globally, is about American photographer John Steele, who likes to photograph old alleys in Korea.
His photos of beautiful Korean scenery posted on social media have received rave reviews. He took them while traveling around Korea with his dog, Holly. John is especially fond of old back alleyways in Seoul, which have been disappearing one by one due to modernization.
He likes the warm hearts of locals living in old neighborhoods. That's what draws him to Ant Village time and again. He also likes to visit Watch Alley in Yeji-dong, where you can feel the spirit of artisans and learn about the preciousness of slow living. In another old neighborhood in Mullae-dong, where alleys have been transformed from a cluster of steel shops into an art village, visitors can feel a harmony between the past and the present, between art and daily life.
