Photo and caption by Simon Bond
This photo was taken in Suncheon, and during a culture performance for the garden expo. After these woman had performed I noticed the chance to take them in an urban setting, juxtaposing against the traditional Hanbok clothes they're wearing. I needed to follow them for a few streets, and hope that something would happen. The lady on the left looked towards her friend, and I then hit the shutter. I like the way they're surrounded by the monochrome world, but are together as friends.
