“I’m a young photographer and director based in Berlin. Inspired by the space between the surreal and documentary, my work is intimate yet cinematic. After studying I started experimenting with moving images and directed two short films, which changed my career as a photographer. In terms of visuals, that can be seen as sensuality expressed through colours and creating a narrative behind every image, capturing life like a film still.

BEAUTIFUL STRANGERS is an investigation of characters found in Berlin, documenting the ambiguousness of people met in this strange place. Raw, stripped of their usual surrounding, amplifying and distorting the individual portrayed.”

„My name is Won June Choi. But everyone here calls me June.“
June is an artist and performer, producing and combining music within his work. After growing up and studying in South Korea he moved to Berlin.
