Han Youngsoo: Photographs of Seoul 1956-63 in ICP gallery at Mana Contemporary, Jersey City, February 24 – June 9, 2017

Han Youngsoo: Photographs of Seoul 1956–63 is the first substantial U.S. showing of the work of Korean photographer Han Youngsoo (1933–1999), whose remarkable images bring to life the social and economic rebirth of Seoul in the years following the Korean War. The thirty-eight prints on view have been selected by ICP Adjunct Curator Christopher Phillips and Waterfall Mansion & Gallery Adjunct Curator Dooeun Choi. A biographical video, Han Youngsoo: His Modern Times in Seoul, produced by the Han Youngsoo Foundation, will be on view in the gallery throughout the course of the exhibition.” — ICP
