Thomas Dworzak, a young, committed member of Magnum Photos, has been documenting conflicts all over the world, but this project of photographing Korea's cutting-edge industries and technologies is an unfamiliar territory even to this tough photographer. Nonetheless, he is excited to tackle a new subject and we cannot wait to see what his camera discovers about the fast-evolving industries and technologies of Korea.
Thomas Dworzak visits Korea's leading automobile manufacturing plant and the world's largest shipbuilding yard, as well as the Daedeok science hub, the cradle of Korea's latest technologies. He also captures how ordinary Koreans make use of these technologies in their everyday lives.
He then introduces the environments which gave rise to the pioneering mobile phone technology and world-class computer games and e-sports. Check out "In Frame" to see the images Thomas Dworzak presented of the leading-edge industries and technologies of Korea.
