Jee Young Lee dream rooms

Treasure Hunt | Black Birds | Resurrection

Dreams DO come true, especially if you’re JeeYoung Lee! This incredible South Korean artist spends several weeks (and even months) transforming her tiny 3x6m studio into unbelievably elaborate worlds inspired by her personal life and traditional Korean fables. In fact, her attention to detail is so sharp that none of these photographs are manipulated by Photoshop! My favorite scene is “Treasure Hunt”, which perfectly captures the joy and wonder of childhood…minus giant grasshoppers, of course. Check out the rest of JeeYoung’s surreal sets here!
