A few months ago photographer Brian St. Denis traveled to South Korea to visit his sister-in-law, who is teaching at an English school in Bucheon for the year. During his trip he captured stunning images of the country. From shots of high-rise buildings to rolling landscapes, colourful market stalls and not-so-ordinary experiences of everyday life in the city, it was no easy task to pick our favourite photos you see below.
