Michael Vince Kim
Told through the stories of their descendants,
Kim’s series “Aenikkaeng” provides a “poetic
account” of 1,033 Koreans who were sold as
indentured slaves on henequen plantations in
Mexico in 1905, then Cuba in 1910 after they
could no longer return to Korea due to Japanese
colonial rule. Kim, whose photographic projects
explore the historical context of Korean linguistic
variations, notes that it was common for Koreans
to learn the language of the Mayan Yucatecans
they worked alongside, rather than the language
spoken by their Spanish masters.
