"In the early 1990s various trips took Jungjin Lee into the endless expanse of America, where she captured archaic, primal images of deserts, rocks, undergrowth, and cactuses.
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, in which her fundamental interest in nature and culture is expressed in a space of poetic resonance. In her work, Jungjin Lee taps her profound understanding for materiality, texture, and craftsmanship. Working with Liquid Light, she applies photosensitive emulsion onto rice paper with a coarse brush.
The publication presents eleven groups of works, commentated and contextualized in essays by Lena Fritsch, Hester Keijser, and Liz Wells, providing, for the very first time, an overview of an oeuvre spanning two decades.
Jungjin Lee: Echo was published on the occasion of an exhibition at Fotomuseum Winterthur from September 17, 2016 till January 29, 2017."

Pride of place is given to memorials to the first Gulf war (the Iran-Iraq War of 1980–88), which is part of the founding myth of the...
Publisher's presentation: "Passengers is the result of an observation Dagmar Keller and Martin Wittwer made at night at a bus station while travelling through Poland. For a moment, the passengers on an old bus, obscured behind stained, ice-covered windows, in the pale light of the bus station had the appearance of figures in a painting. Travellers, fallen...

They seem introspective, engrossed in thought, their gaze directed towards an inner landscape. The camera’s view of the subjects it portrays is frequently...
