Probably one of the most heated arguments you can start with a Korean is over the status of Dokdo, two small islets in the East Sea that Koreans claim were annexed by Japan in 1910 and never returned following World War II. Japan still holds out that the land is theirs, calling it Takishima and instructing school students to that effect. While overwhelming proof supports Korea’s claim on the islets, one thing that cannot be disputed is the beauty to be captured by visiting these remote landmasses.
This video is something special. Not because of the subject matter, but the source of the images. While I did all the editing and scored the piece… the images and the trip were done solely by Jo. I was still in Seoul filming Paul Ajosshi’s Neck of the Woods. This video is also marks the launch of JohanneMiller.com – Jo’s new photo blog. It’s been something I’ve been encouraging her to do for a long time. She’s the eye behind most of the pictures you see here and on my articles for The Korea Blog.
I hope you’re surf on over to her site and welcome her to the Internet and subscribe to her RSS feed. You will not believe the photos she will be posting this year. She is by far the most talented photographer I know… granted I am a little biased.
