About This Book

The perfect complement to Korean culture, history and written language is the universal visual language of photography, brought to peak expression with 21st-century digital technology.

Korean American photojournalist and columnist Hyungwon Kang brings all these elements together in this book. He grew up on the West Coast of the United States and spent more than three decades in the mainstream US media. Kang set out to document Korean history and culture which until now has been largely unknown to the rest of the world.

Kang presents visual evidence of the continuity of Korean history in pictures, including prehistoric times, the Bronze Age, the Iron Age, and modern times.

The historical scope of this book includes the Ancient Joseon from 2,333 BCE, the founding civilization of the East Asia, followed by formations of Buyeo, Goguryeo, Baekje, and Gaya Kingdoms and confederacies which became a part of a singular Korean Silla Kingdom through 935 CE, only to be reinvented into the Goryeo Empire and then into another Korean Joseon Kingdom that which was reborn as modern Korea in the 20th century.

Visual History of Korea documents Korea’s long history plus the most recent century of dynamic and often tumultuous Korean culture entering the 21st century.
