Me Kyeoung Lee is an artist who has spent the last two decades documenting the tiny convenience stores and corner shops that dot the streets of South Korea. She recalls a happy childhood when these stores were commonplace: “There were not many things to see and play like these days, but there was a time when I was happy to have a coin in my hands and run to a shop and hang out with friends gathered in front of it.”
Me Kyeoung Lee picks out every tiny detail you can imagine – from the signage and products on display in each window to little bicycles leaning against their fronts.
