Myoung Ho Lee’s Tree series features his subjects against a pure white backdrop. He retouches the photos to exclude the cranes and ropes that makes the image possible. He recently told T Magazine, “If the mechanics of the artwork were visible, it would be easier for people to recognize the scale and the method. But I want to hide them, to infuse a magical and vague aspect to my work so that viewers may question and try to find answers themselves.”
