South Korean artist Myoung Ho Lee born in 1975, is known for having created a mixed media project that enhances the charm of nature by capturing single trees on rectangular white backdrops, which compose a series of still life called Tree. The project is built on the decontextualization of natural elements made by installations using a white cloth and depicting a wide range of tree species in different seasons and hours of the day.
Photographs were taken with a 4×5 camera and play on the idea of perception and scale, maybe are based partly on traditional painting imagery. In such a critical period for the environment, this project is even more significant.
