Inception of Desire, everyday objects become conceptual art

4 April 2019

The shots from the Inception of Desire series by Korean photographer Claire Lee capture common objects but seen in a different light.

A wallet, a computer, a carton of McDonald’s chips. With the photo series entitled Inception of Desire, Korean photographer Claire Lee has taken everyday objects and made them pieces of art. Playing with backgrounds of the same tone as the objects, with lights and shadows and, above all, with shapes and lines, Claire seems to have managed to ennoble common things that we all have. 

Not the first time that the 1993 photographer worked with these subjects, even in the previous series Domestic Calculus had immortalized a book, a brush, a glass, in short nothing extraordinary. 

Claire’s skill and talent is to see in something accessible to all new, unpublished and surprisingly beautiful aspects and to be able to capture them in a shot.
