Pyschogeography Seonsan - South Korea.

He was selling shoes.

This lady sells fruits, all kinds. Even rotten ones.

This baby, wouldn't stop crying. I don't blame him.
He did stop for this photo, then started again.

I love this lady. she was pointing at me trying to communicate
with me. She didn't understand that I'm not Korean, but she
smiled for the camera.

They're larvae of some sort. They ate these things. It's a delicacy.
The smell isn't so pleasant either.

mixed with the smell of this.

opposite the old ladies, pictured above.

As mentioned in an earlier post, I've spent a year in South Korea, the photos above are of a place called Seonsan, 30minutes from Gumi. It was a market place that seemed to ignore all the rubbish and dirt around them (most people think that that's quite normal in Asia, and I agree, but it's NOT normal in S.Korea)

At this market, I also tried this broth that consisted of Pigs remains/offcuts. ie. ears, snouts, trotters, tails etc. It was interesting.

was defined in 1955 by Guy Debord as the "the study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behavior of individuals." Another definition is "a whole toy box full of playful, inventive strategies for exploring cities...just about anything that takes pedestrians off their predictable paths and jolts them into a new awareness of the urban landscape."


  1. yum korea.
    you are bringing me!
    that blurb about psychogeography - sounds so much like the situationist agenda. mm, food for thought.

  2. You're right :)
    Guy Debord is part of the French Situationists, however, psychogeography today has been numbed down to a series of literary works and newspaper columns aka Will Self and urban explorations not necessarily related to architecture
