An exhibition of photographs by Jungjin Lee, known for her captivating primal landscapes, is on view at Howard Greenberg Gallery through November 10. The exhibition, which marks Lee’s second solo show with the gallery, is entitled “Opening.” A book of the same title, featuring work from 2013 to 2016, was published by Nazraeli Press last year. Traveling to Arizona, New Mexico, and Canada, Lee captured abstract expanses of desert and mountain. Robert Frank has described her images as “landscapes without the human beast.” Harnessing the power of visual silence, her photographs inspire a sense of the deep and quiet interaction between the beholder and the elements of the earth. With a profound understanding of texture and craftsmanship, Lee’s large format photographs, printed on Korean mulberry paper, present a weight and physical presence that is both mysterious and deliberate. Many of the images in “Opening” are narrow verticals, reminiscent of the shape of hanging scrolls, which hint at Eastern philosophies and the pursuit of inner peace.
