South Korea is a country where approximately 40% of the male population smokes and the leading type of cancer related deaths is of the lung. Working as a teacher in an elementary school I happened to find a doll and a model of blackened lungs tucked away in the infirmary. These are decommissioned apparatuses used in school anti-smoking campaigns. In my spare time I began travelling to different schools, searching for these dolls and photographing them. It is a work in progress that I hope to finish by the end of the year.
