Jee Young Lee, is a Korean artist who creates beautiful and oneiric landscapes in her installations, using the space of her 3 x 6 meters studio in Seoul. Young Lee makes every detail by hand, making surreal compositions for each photograph, creating a kind of self-portrait, which leads us to scenarios full of the creativity and imagination of the artist. After taking each picture, she does not change them digitally.
None of her images are frontal self-portraits, as the artist is trying to convey a search for identity, desires and mood in each scenario. Her creations act as a catharsis that allows her to accept social repression and frustration.
Lee’s photography seem to be influenced, at least conceptually by the artist Sandy Skoglun.
