Description: Interview with Australian Artist Jackson Eaton discussing his book “Better Half”.
Better Half is a bizarre personal love story, played in two parts. After his parents separated in 2006 Jackson went to live in South Korea, where he became romantically involved with a Korean woman and began to document their intimate life photographically. The relationship heart-breakingly ended after a few years, and Jackson returned to Australia alone in 2009.
During Jackson’s time away and in wake of his marital separation, Jackson’s father followed him to South Korea looking for a change. Two years later he also returned, but he was not alone. His father had fallen in love, also with a Korean woman, and was married in Australia soon after.
Jackson has a kickstarter project to support his book Better Half.
