For Lee, the process of photographing his Tree series was a performance art in itself. He challenges us to see an ordinary tree in a new way by presenting it against a giant white canvas backdrop. While the concept is simple, the execution is complex. In addition to planning and construction, two cranes are required to erect the backdrop, which isolates the tree from its environment. Lee is currently working towards his Ph.D. in Photography at Chung-Ang University, Seoul and his works have been exhibited in Asia and the US.
