Publisher's Description
For over two decades internationally recognized Korean artist Jungin Lee has traveled between her home country and America capturing fragmentary and poetic images of their respective landscapes. From archaic and primal images of deserts, rocks and undergrowth to oceans and urban details Lee draws on her South Korean heritage to develop a unique and personal pictorial language. By printing her black-and-white images onto large sheets of handmade rice paper while applying photo emulsion by herself, Lee creates artwork that is sculptural in its look and presentation. Echo, a recent monograph accompanying Lee s solo exhibition at Fotomuseum Winterthur (Switzerland, Sept., 2016 - Jan., 2017) includes multiple zen-like works individually defined but which flow uninterrupted through single images and multiple gate-folds to reveal hidden dimensions. Well-written essays by Lena Fritsch, Hester Keijser and Liz explore the haunting beauty of Lee s photographs.
