Take Your Seat was commissioned to traverse the Republic of Korea with our director's chair, to capture the natural and cultural wonders we had heard so much about. The Land of the Morning Calm surpassed even our highest expectations. We and our chair found a warm welcome and spectacular scenery in every region. 

The photographs below are the results of our first expedition, taken over 10 days in September 2022. These photographs will first be shared at our exclusive installations at Toronto Pearson Airport.

Welcome to Take Your Seat, Korea!
