Although Korea is a divided peninsula it is still connected by one mountain system called the Baekdu Daegan. Revered for thousands of years as a provider of energy and vitality for the Korean people, it is an unbroken ridge that stretches for some 1700km. Water never crosses it, making it therefore the watershed of the entire peninsula. It is a place of huge nationalistic and spiritual significance for all Koreans.

Korean Mountain Culture expert Roger Shepherd has been researching and photographing the meaning of the Baekdu Daegan in Korea for the last six years. Recently he obtained permission to conduct a very rare photographic expedition of the Baekdu Daegan in North Korea,.

The expedition will feature some of his works from both North and South Korea.

Roger can be contacted at

Exhibition starts 3 March 2012 until 1 April 2012.
