Publisher's Description

Second, Revised Edition.

In the early 1990s, various trips took South Korea–born, New York–based artist Jungjin Lee (born 1961) into the endless expanse of America, where she captured archaic, primal images of deserts, rocks, undergrowth and cacti. Drawing on her South Korean heritage, the artist developed a highly unique pictorial language in series such as Ocean, On Road, Pagodas, Things and Wind, series in which her fundamental interest in nature and culture is expressed in a poetic language of materiality, texture and craftsmanship that takes place in the field and in the darkroom. One of her signature materials is Liquid Light; she applies this photosensitive emulsion onto rice paper with a coarse brush.

Jungjin Lee: Echo presents 11 groups of the photographer's works, explored and contextualized in new essays—providing, for the very first time, an overview of an oeuvre spanning two decades.
