This young photographer has a unique perspective with his camera which may well emanate from his world wide multi-cultural experiences. The son of a Stanford professor of Aerodynamics, Jason was born in San Jose but at age 5 his parents brought him back to Seoul where they still live. Jason has also visited and lived in many other places around the world including Japan, Singapore, Australia, Indonesia and France. His images, still and moving, reflect a soulful sensibility that conveys an individualistic local spirit versus a mass market formula.

Once in Atlanta, completing his degree in Film from Emory, he set up permanent roots with his wife, former publicist for Hyundai in Korea, and baby daughter with another on the way come April, 2018. It seems imagery is in his family forever, carried forth by daughter, Lena who has her own Instagram page, handle moottttoo, named after the family cat.
