Photographer #134: Myoung Ho Lee

South-Korean photographer Myoung Ho Lee, 1975, photographs trees. He frames the trees against white canvas backdrops, seperating the tree from it's original surrounding. Although the images might seem simple, to get his result requires a production crew and heavy cranes to install the canvases. Afterwards he removes the ropes or bars that might still be visible by minimal digital retouching. The trees are photographed using a large-format camera. The following images are all from the Tree series.

Unfortunately Myoung Ho Lee does not have a website, for more information go to:

What a unique way to photograph the trees... It makes them look a little bit surreal.
