[Exhibition] Remembering Jeju photographer Kim Young Gap, 15 years on

It’s hard to believe that it has already been 15 years since Jeju photographer Kim Young Gap died tragically of Lou Gehrig’s disease, aged 49. 

His last exhibition was held in Seoul in 2005 and is being re-exhibited at the Kim Young Gap Gallery in Seongsan-eup now through the end of the year to commemorate 15 years since his passing.

I was fortunate to see his 2005 exhibition at the Sejong Cultural Center in central Seoul. If you’d like to read my write-up titled “Patience Key in Picture Perfect Panoramas” please click here.

Please note: Due to the COVID-19 crisis, many of Jeju’s seasonal festivals and tourist destinations have closed. Meanwhile, though, we would like to highlight some of the island’s attractions. We sincerely hope you will visit Jeju once the crisis has passed.
