Can you fall in love with an inanimate object? Can you be intimate when the relationship is a one-way street? Can a hyper-realistic doll fill the loneliness that aches inside? This is something South Korean photographer June Korea explores in his photographic essay Still Lives: Eva.

However, Eva and I are metaphors – metaphors of our emotions and relationships with humans, cats, dogs, A.I.s, and people living in this lonely world. I hope viewers to find deeper meanings hidden underneath such metaphors, rather than just focusing on the subjects themselves. In the artificial eternity I constructed, I hope for myself and viewers who are struggling with different types of emotions everyday, that we can find more meaning by sharing stories of the solitude in our lives.”
