Imagination plus sense of space gives JeeYoung Lee’s photographs their magical quality. Once again, this series has zero post-image manipulation. Working like a set designer, Lee creates these incredible situations for real.
JeeYoung Lee creates highly elaborate scenes that require an incredible amount of patience and absolutely no photo manipulation. For weeks and sometimes months, JeeYoung Lee works in her small 360 x 410 x 240 cm studio bringing to life worlds that defy all logic. In the middle of the sets you can always find the artist herself, as her unconventional works are always also self-portraits. Inspired by either her personal life or old Korean fables, they each have their own backstory, which only intensifies the drama.
