Kasia Korzeniowska: "I thought it'd be fun to photograph my friends skipping in the park, as it's really only something we do as young girls. Photographing them on an early autumn evening in a park in Suwon, South Korea, where we live, was fun, not least because of the looks we got from all the Korean joggers and walkers passing us by!"
