The invention of Photoshop has served to take the photography industry to an entirely new level, that cannot be denied; but sometimes it’s nice to see an artist take the path less traveled and execute their vision without the assistance of photo-editing software. And that is exactly what artist Jee Young Lee does with her psychedelic, surreal photography.

Setting up extensively detailed props and elaborate sets in her 9 x 13.5 x 8 ft studio, Lee creates alternate universes where she is always the model, but not always the focus. She draws inspiration from her personal life and experiences, as well as Korean fables. Each photograph is a metaphor for something deeper in her subconscious. And best of all, her work uses no digital manipulation. Lee’s work will be featured at the OPIOM Gallery in Opio, France from February 7 to March 7, 2014. You can see more of her work here.
