Korean Schooling by Andrés Gallardo Albajar
Self-taught Spanish photographer Andrés Gallardo Albajar presents his pastel hued series documenting Korean schools in both Seoul and Busan. Korean Schooling takes a calm, symetrical look at these repetitive, organised buildings that would not look out of place in a Wes Anderson film.
"When I got to know I'd be visiting South Korea I made a big list of places and architecture I wanted to visit." Andrés explains, "But I'd never expect I would end up making series of Korean schools. It all started by accident, when I got a little lost in Seoul and ended up in the playground of a school. I got fascinated by their pastel colors, their trees and symbols like the clocks, the national flag and the alphabet I don't understand."
