Myoung Ho Lee

Myoung Ho Lee

Work from the series TREE.

TREE is an intriguing take on the traditional landscape (and portrait). While isolating a tree for the photograph (with a large piece of canvas), Myoung Ho Lee also denies us a view of a significant portion of the landscape, gives an imagined view into his process, and provides a unique view of a tree removed from context. This work is both simple and complex, which really makes my day. On a side note, these remind me of some process photographs I have seen of Avedon's work.
