I’ve always wondered: Why did everyone come to London? How are they doing since they left London?

In 2006, I came to London to study. I tried to adjust to life in London by sharing the cultures and identities of all my friends with various nationalities. I and my friends filled the time in our own way and went back to our respective places. The story resumes ten years later, revealing how they are living since returning home.

Since 2016, I started searching for fourteen friends who returned to their hometowns through the social networking services. I visited London, San Diego, Oslo, Iceland, and Taipei in person. They were looking back on their past selves with me. Each of us was focused on hard living while we were living in London. How we lived may have been more important than why we went home. I wonder what our daily lives today will mean to us in the future. In this sense, the work is not at an end.

    MUG Publishing is Seoul-based art publisher company focusing on photography and illustrations, printed matter, and more. Founded by Jin Hee Bae in 2008, we have been fortunate enough to work with fantastic individuals and organizations in art, culture, education, and corporate fields.

    Starting in 2015, we have linked photographers with each other so they could communicate with artists in other mediums. We created promotional projects and planned exhibitions, art markets, and art books on photography.

    We have participated in Photoville, New York’s largest outdoor premium photo festival, starting in 2016. In addition, many books and photographers were introduced at the Athens Photo Festival, fotofever Paris, Photo Independent LA, and more.

    Finally, this June 2019, we have opened the first photography library in Seoul.
