Myoung Ho Lee is a young, South Korean artist who has produced an elaborate series of photographs that is simple in concept, nut complex in execution. It poses unusual questions about perception of reality, art, and the environment. Lee simply picks out a likely tree, sets up a white canvas backdrop (with the help of a few assistants of course), and takes a picture. The idea is to mess with the viewers’ perception of depth, reality, and size. According to Lee, “Seeing trees in a refreshing way or restoring the value of trees is to awaken all beings on earth in my work.”.
