This is a brief documentary about the Australian photographer George Rose who visited Korea in the year 1904, an important time in the history of the North East Asian region.
It was a time when Eastern and Western powers clashed for political and economic domination of the region, beginning with the Russo Japanese conflict and ending with the annexation and colonial domination of Korea by Japan which lasted until the end of the Second World War.
The Korean images taken by Rose are some of the most important from the pre-colonial era, not only for their professional technical attributes but also for capturing a time and place that has long since disappeared.
