19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People

My family and I lived in this old apartment, called the ‘Evergreen Apartment’, from when I was 8 years old until recently, and from the time Sae-hyun was born until he was 8 years old. In 2021, it was decided to destroy and reconstruct this old and messy, but affectionate apartment. Now all the residents have moved out and the buildings are empty. Sae-hyun was very sad to hear this news. And he and I wanted to photograph with the building to say our proper goodbyes before the building completely disappears.
