Myoung Ho Lee was born in Seul, the capital of South Korea, in 1975. He studied photography at Joong-Ang University and today he works as a professor there. His series called 'Tree' is a reflection on reality, replacement, art and the concept of observing our natural surroundings. Though a simple concept in itself, the actual process of bringing the concept to fruition demands a huge amount of work. First, the trees are captured as a whole in their surroundings and then they are isolated one by one. A giant canvas is hung behind each tree which removes it from its normal context and offers us a new perspective. The photograph is the end result of the process but there is also the temporary intervention that takes place in both natural and urban surroundings.
