This Artist’s Amazing Mini-Worlds Are A Window Into Her Soul

Photo by JeeYoung Lee

South Korean artist JeeYoung Lee creates amazing mini-worlds from her dreams, memory and imagination — building them in a tiny 10 x 19ft (3 x 6 m) room. She then photographs them and presents them to the world exactly as they are, with no photoshop or editing whatsoever. Each picture is exactly how she created the room in real life, and is a tiny glimpse inside her super-creative mind captured in time.

Some of the rooms take months to build before they are exactly how she wants them, with incredible attention to detail and complexity. She then places herself in each scene before a photo is taken to capture the idea born out of her mind. Each image becomes a picture of her emotions, thoughts and fears, an eternal self-portrait of her soul.
