I am so excited to share with you some photographs from Korea’s very first Kinfolk gathering hosted at the beautiful Ongdalsam last weekend! Jacqui and I have been talking about organizing this gathering since early summer, especially because of the opportune “preserving the season” theme. Korea has such a rich history of seasonal pickling and fermenting, and Ongdalsam is just the perfect place to experience it.
I am so happy to have been a small part of it, even from thousands of miles away now. There were some amazing women were involved in organizing and making this event possible: Jacqui, Sonja, Yoo Jeong, Bora, and of course, the lovely traditional food specialist, Suh Mi Soon. And even Ji Sun and Sooji for stepping in, and helping organize the bus trip to Chungju.
Here are some dreamy analog photographs of the event captured by Jun:
