A little over a year ago, I featured a young Korean artist by the name JeeYoung Lee. The young photographer, as you may or may not be aware of, would utilize her small 3 x 6 meter studio in Seoul, South Korea. Building basically from scratch, she would fill up the small room with dream-like worlds straight from her imagination and into reality.
She’s back, sharing even more obscure visions – every single square inch of space is filled with her hand-made props and set pieces combined with elegant backdrops. It’s difficult to consider this as purely photography, since nearly every single thing she features has been created by her – sometimes the photos include her in them too!
The fun part, if you’re curious and unaware, is that she never edits the images digitally. Yes, all the images you’re about to see are sans-Photoshop. If this isn’t a power combo of talent, creativity, and everlasting patience, I don’t know what is.
Having been featured in OPIOM Gallery, JeeYoung Lee has been described as such: “Her creations act as a catharsis which allows her to accept social repression and frustrations … these worlds turn real and concretize; imagination reverts to the tangible and the photo imagery of such fiction testify as to their reality.”
