This is an impromptu portrait I took of a South Korean woman who was participating in a G20 protest hosted in Seoul. I know nothing about her personally, yet it seems fair to assume that she has lived a long, hard life. I couldn't help but be inspired by her given that, after all she has surely been through and continues to be subjected to, she remains firm, standing up to and rejecting the current socio-economic system that has abused her and billions of others in ways we affluent could never fathom. One look into this woman's worn eyes should be enough to move anyone with a conscious to ask themselves how, in a world full of self-proclaimed humanitarians, people such as this can continue to be brushed under the rug, forgotten in the name of apathy and convenience.
This is the sixth photo of my Essay, representing another, less commonly seen side of Korea.
