George Rose photographs of 1904 Korea project

The George Rose photographs of Korea reveal many aspects of Korea's recent history that many may well have forgotten. AKF gained access to the glass negatives of these photographs of Korea and decided it was important to ensure as many Koreans as possible are able see these treasured moments in time.
