2,000 Tanzanian shillings is worth about a dollar. Something I didn’t realize until days later is that the physical size of the bill also indicates its relative worth. So 2,000 shillings is a smaller bill than the red, 10,000 bill.

The scandal involving President Park and her friend Choi Soon-sil struck a nerve with many young students. Following the @sewolaftermath, many young South Koreans were already upset about President Park’s unaccounted seven hour absence during the crucial initial hours of the ferry sinking. It is customary in South Korea for students to go on field trips in their high school years, and they felt that they or anyone they know could have been the victims. They identified themselves as part of the Sewol Generation and owned that name.
This is @junmichaelpark in South Korea continuing the takeover. The Sewol ferry disaster in April 2014 shook the collective consciousness of South Korean society and eventually paved a way for President Park’s ouster. On 9 Dec 2016, South Korea’s National Assembly impeached President Park Geun-hye and the Constitutional Court of Korea ruled in favor of her removal in March 2017. Here are some of the moments that shaped South Korea’s “Candlelight Revolution”.
Here's a series of images taken last weekend to document a trip to lorong buangkok.
It currently stands as the last remaining Kampong however it would soon be all gone due to the rapid demand and growth of our nation for modern day flats.
Residents were mostly indoors due to the intense heat of the mid day sun. Majority of them were welcoming to us, although there were a handful that scowled at us and even had anti-media signs planted by their homes.
The kampong was certainly rich with nostalgia coupled with a hint of what's to come ; all of which I wanted to portray through these set of images.

Moshi, Tanzania. Our first official day, after traveling more than 20 hours the day before. Our bus pulls up to a small shop so that we can exchange dollars for shillings. In just a few minutes this quiet scene changes and street vendors flock to sell everything from chocolate to Mount Kilimanjaro safari hats.
