Review: Myoung Ho Lee at Yossi Milo Gallery

Posted By Administration, Thursday, April 9, 2009

This Korean photographer's U.S. solo début includes eight color images in sizes that range from ten inches square to seven feet wide; the over-all effect is modest and elegantly restrained.


Lee's subjects are trees native to his country, photographed as if they were fashion models, before white canvas backdrops that isolate them from their natural setting without entirely obscuring it. The stretched canvas emphasizes the trees' graphic quality—each branch, each leaf is thrown into high relief—so they appear both hyper-real and as large-scale drawings in the landscape. Lee coaxes nature into posing for a portrait, then returns it to quiet anonymity.

From The New Yorker.
