3. Spring Combined with The Image of Water
What kind of scenery comes into your mind when you think of the word ‘spring’? If it is an image of green fields under the clear, blue sky, we suggest you try a new concept for this year. Capture the creatures full of vividness around the dewy season of Kogu(곡우, 穀雨), the sixth solar term of the year that ‘brings luster to hundred kinds of grains’.

4. UV-light-related Lifestyle
Products that protect people’s skin from UV light, which is ‘one of the main enemies of skin health’, have been developed for many decades. These products also reflect people’s changing lifestyles as well; patch and/or mask-shaped UV-light ‘protectors’ for people who enjoy outdoor sports, and sunscreens without ‘oxybenzone’ which is known to kill corals for conscious customers can be great examples. Grasp the rapid-changing society in the circle of everyday lives in the form of stock images.

People enjoying the sunny weather under the clear sky. People sitting under the shade to hide from the Sun.
5. Housing Community
In a traditional form of community, members of the family took care of each other. However, it’s disbanding quickly. Therefore, an alternative form of housing community is getting more and more attention; not to let anyone more forgotten in the indifference and alienation. This kind of community, in which members are making effort to make their own lives better together in the same place, is getting spread on a national level. Direct an image that shows the newly rising housing community against the wave of an aging, hyper-personalized society.
Requested Images: Housing communities with similar or various age groups. Residents’ Association Meetings · One-Day Classes · Hobby Gatherings · Dining taking place in a housing community. Image of shared Kitchen · Living Room · Reading Room · Library · Office · Gym.
