subject separation

13Jan12

Today I’m mentally engaging in the photographs of South Korean artist, Myoung Ho Lee. He separates a subject from its environment by isolating it on a blank white page in its natural setting, then photographs it. The result is an object simultaneously belonging to and standing apart from an environment. This essay by art critic Sang Yong Shim from Lens Culture magazine further peaked my interest with its discussion of the artist’s deconstruction of the photography-act through separation of the subject.
