Photographed director Park Chan-wook  at the Ganghwa Anglican Church outside Seoul.

“ Oh Suk Kuhn is best known for his series, begun in 2006, starring two models in giant dolls’ heads — figures based on Chulsoo and Younghee, characters from a popular series of children’s books. The resulting tableaus depict scenes of trauma from his countrymen’s childhoods. For this portrait of Park, seen here in front of the Ganghwa Anglican Church on Ganghwa Island (about an hour outside of Seoul), the artist employed similar heads. Credit : Oh Suk Kuhn.
