Young Ho Seo has cultivated an exceptional portfolio of stunning portraits.

The Korean and Japanese-based photographer somehow manages to draw a raw, sensual energy from each subject. Most notably, Seo's shots of women have an latent erotic impulse embedded within them. There is something about the way he depicts the female form and, more importantly, the female gaze, that renders the viewer completely enticed. However, with any subject, male or female, Seo constructs a vibrant and compelling picture of who they are.

Of course, portraits are only a partial narrative. The rest, the context, is largely left unseen, allowing the viewer to use their imagination when looking at each image, filling in the blanks of the story.
