Sperling Kim

Sperling Kim was born in 1975 in Korea, though a family in Germany adopted him. His series, “Uri Nara (our country),” was personal in subject, and consisted of a series of portraits of adult Korean adoptees who grew up in the West but decided to return to Korea permanently.

Koreans who live in other countries range from first-generation immigrants who left their homeland a long time ago to third- or fourth-generation Koreans who may have seen Korea only on a map.
