Our NameThe meaning of ‘Photo’ is obvious. But, in case you were curious… the “kore” in the Photokore name is a play on four words:
- • Core - which in English means ‘center’ , ‘heart’, ‘focal point’,
- • コレ - ‘ko-re’, which in Japanese is short for ‘collection’,
- • Kor - the first three letters in ‘Korea’,
- • 库尔 - ‘ku er’ (which in Chinese means ‘storage here’).
