Photographer Turns Her 14SQM Studio Into Fantastic Worlds (Not Photoshopped)

Korean artist and photographer artist Jee Young Lee lives in Seoulwhere she uses a small 3.6×4.1×2.4 meter studio.

Jee Young converts her studio into fantastic worlds in a malicious process that takes weeks for each setup. Each process ends up with a wonderfully surreal world. Young Lee then takes a photo of the world as the final step of the artistic process. Amazingly, the photos are not manipulated by photoshop.

Stage of Mind 1

Jee Young Lee calls the series Stage of Mind and it will be presented in early 2014 at Opiom gallery.

    Amazing.

    Nightmare, my favorite. Why? Because you don’t get the sense it was a photo taken in a small room like the others. It has no sense of space which makes it slightly mysterious.

    This is absolutely fantastic ! What a creativity ! I’d like to know how long it takes to build a scene like Flu or Nightspace or Black birds? With what kind of materials ? Are there many people involved or it’s just DIY alone ? Anyway she’s very talented and a real hard worker to obtain such great results. Bravo !

    Match Girl – Is that a remake of ‘Personal Values’ by Rene Magritte?

    Amazing. I have a hard time believing that the photos are not manipulated by Photoshop, as the article claims.
