Ahn Sang-Soo, a leading figure in Korean typographic design, transforms the new issue of Un Sedicesimo in a photographic project: a selection of sixteen shots for his new project “One eye”. Dancers, musicians, designers, students, professors, hostess pose in a very high range of contexts covering one eye with their hand: a photo-souvenir series featuring surprised characters because of the unusual request of Ahn Sang-Soo. Sixteen photos, one for each page, with a short description to remember the occasion in which they were taken.
