Myoung Ho Lee - Photography Act (2007)
“Lee has produced an elaborate series of photographs that pose some unusual questions about representation, reality, art, environment and seeing. Simple in concept, complex in execution, he makes us look at a tree in its natural surroundings, but separates the tree artificially from nature by presenting it on an immense white ground, as one would see a painting or photograph on a billboard.”
This is one of those photo concepts where you think “Oh, this sounds kind of cool.” And then you see the photographs, and you realize that there’s more to a good photography project than a seemingly cool concept.
