Seoul-based Juanita Hong’s ‘My Escape’ project is an ode to her love of her own bedroom – her personal place of escape. Within her project she photographs people in their own private spaces and encourages them to write a note explaining their feelings regarding their room. The result is a sweet, personable collection of photography in which you receive a glimpse into the subject’s personality within a quick snapshot.

Juanita explains, “The objective of the project is for people to express their thoughts and feelings about their personal space, whether they use it as an escape from the daily routines that they go through in their lives to just a temporary place they call home.”


So far shoots have taken place in various locations in the Philippines, the US and South Korea. Juanita plans to develop the series further while living in Seoul.
