Photographer's Note

After a year away, I have returned to Korea. This is a place that makes me extremely happy. With a new job came the same introductions to Korean culture and a trip to a folk village.

Normally I would be running far away from these sort of tours, after spending so much time in Korea and visiting so many other folk villages around the country. This time was a lot better as I was with a group of new teachers who have never been to Korea before and it was like seeing the history again through a fresh pair of eyes.

The performance is called nong-ang nori, which is larger than the more common sa-bul-nori. The instrument that the man is about to catch is called a so-go and it is one of the numerous tradition Korean percussion instruments.
