Korea by Julia Fullerton-Batten, a world renowned photographer hailing from Germany, is a photo series that concentrates on the Asian culture in a unique way. It juxtaposes old and new for arresting images that are at once serious and entertaining.

Shot all over Seoul, the capital city of South Korea, Korea by Julia Fullerton-Batten follows a group of Korean women as they roam around the country's largest metropolis. What sets them apart, aside from their obviously staged poses, is the fact that they are dressed in the traditional Hanbok, a dress characterized by vibrant colors and simple lines without pockets. They perform equally traditional duties against the modern backdrop of Seoul. The disparity between the models and the setting is very thought-provoking.
