The recognized master of "disguise" is the Chinese photographer Liu Bolin, about whom we have repeatedly talked about on the site Culturology.Ru. It seems that now he has a serious competitor. The Korean Seokmin Ko is no easier to find than his colleague from China. The only clue is the fingertips with which the photographer Seokmin Ko is holding the mirror.

The photographer explains that the mirror is an allegory of modern society, in which people try to crush each other's individuality, condemning originality, sincerity, and dissimilarity. Seokmin Ko commented on his project: “We live by closing ourselves off from each other. Foundations, customs, traditions - all this "standardizes" a person, society educates people who are deprived of their own "I". To become a “normal” person, we begin to change, and this is the main tragedy."
