The opening night was wonderful with a live performance, which featured a moving monologue accompanied by musical instruments. A lot of friends and acquaintances attended the opening of the show, while enjoying complimentary beverages and snacks courtesy of DJAC and its participating members. Thanks for coming!


  1. Great photos! Looks like the show was a big success. Were all of the artists fellow expats or was it a mix of locals and westerners? I find collaborative shows to be the most interesting and successful in turns of turn out. Looks like the space was pretty sizable as well. I need to go to more events like this again!

  2. Wow firstly congratulations!! How awesome that your artwork was featured. Looks like a fun event to attend from your pictures.

  3. Hey Alla- your photography is always amazing and I’m so glad that events like this give you the chance to show it off to the world! I wish I lived in Daejon sometimes because you guys seem to have a huge focus on the arts. Kudos to you!

  4. Congrats Alla! It seems like the event went very well with many people attending. That’s so great! I really miss attending art shows. I wish Daegu had a similar scene like in Deejon. What kind of photos did you display? Was there a particular theme you explored in your photos?

  5. Congratulations! It’s simply amazing to see your work on display, isn’t it? Are you still teaching photography? Your students must be very lucky to have a very skilful teacher. Also, it’s great that you get to meet and see your fellow artists there in Daejeon. Keep on inspiring!
