    Kyung Soo Kim’s series Full Moon Story originated from a commissioned project by Vogue Korea to re-interpret the Hanbok (traditional Korean costume). In the present image, we see a woman, with her sumptuous Hanbok ballooning around her, walking barefoot in the shallow water among the bamboos. Kim explains how he achieved this lyrical and modern staging: “I wanted a neutral stage; only shadows and reflections mattered to me. Colours, faces and models were enhanced by cold and light tones, creating an almost surreal feeling."
