China corporate photographer: LDC Annual Report, Yunnan Coffee Farming

Yunnan province in Southern China has emerged as a coffee producing region this past decade and is now becoming the focus of attention as a new player on the global stage for coffee trading.

The Louis Dreyfus Company is working in close collaboration with coffee farmers around Asia to help and promote sustainable farming methods, aiming to raise the ethical and quality standards of production and overall improve the entire supply chain.

My latest collaboration with LDC saw me travelling to Yunnan to document the work of farmers in the hills of Pu’er, as well as the quality control, warehousing and shipping process in Kunming for the company’s regional and global annual report and sustainability report.

Seoul Brutalist Revival - Korea Architecture Photographer

I was recently in South Korea for a commercial architectural assignment, so I decided to arrive a few days early to take some time for myself and walk around Seoul, a city I always love to explore.

Seoul has been developping very fast since its recovery from the Korean war, yet in the 21st century the city has actually turned into a new phase where it's moving away from a boring industrial center and rapidly becoming one of the most trendy cities in Asia.

One of the most visually obvious aspect of this new era is the super-modern architecture poping up everywhere. The city's skyline is turning into a massive futuristic landscape out of science fiction film, and amidst this construction frenzy brutalist architecture is making a huge come-back, with a modern twist. Whether for residential, commercial, institutional or religious buildings, the use of raw concrete, bold shapes and sharp angles is becoming predominant all around the city.

Through this personal study about Neo-Brutalism, I aim to give a small glimpse into the booming architectural scene of Seoul, one of the world's fastest developping city and Asia's rising stars.
