Catalogue Note

Lee Jungjin's works are highly regarded in the field of photography and widely collected. The opposite of photomechanically reproduced, Lee's photographs are given form through a hand brushing process on handmade mulberry paper. The result is an image and a surface texture entirely different from the norms of contemporary photography, in which digital manipulation and machinized printing are so common. Lee's painterly approach produces powerful, mysterious images that, with a quiet and poetic grandeur, defy the simplicity of the simple objects they present.
