quarantine in South Korea during the pandemic

The Korean Job - In February 2021 I spent 14 days in a quarantine facility supplied by the South Korean government. This is what happened during the 2 weeks, what I was fed and what I saw out of my window. I was not allowed to leave the room for the entire 14 days. The food may not look too bad in the images but let me tell you, it was atrocious. It was always cold, mostly bland but every now and then it was uber spicy. It definetely always was dry as hell. No outside fresh food was allowed to be delivered either. Only chips, Coke and stuff that does not expire for at least 6 months. Alcohol was strictly forbidden. The 2 weeks were tough but I used them well creatively, I reckon. I came out of it with three different series that you can see here. a) a documentary film b) a photography series of my window views and c) a photo series of my daily food. Enjoy and share my pain.
