The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows is a website and YouTube channel created by John Koenig. It contains a collection of words that are not officially recognized as part of the English vocabulary to describe different spectrums across human melancholy and sorrow.

Inspired by Koenig’s collection, stylist and HMU Grace Kim and I collaborated to bring a selection of words from DOOS to life through a series of portraits.
