A Terrific Talent
Approximately 4 years ago, the Los Angeles General Office of the New York Life, we had the good fortune of being introduced to the unique artistic world of June H. Lee. We immediately recognized her distinct ability to capture the beauty of our World through the lens of her camera as well as through the talented strokes of her brushes on canvas. We were so impressed with her work that we felt we needed to take advantage of her artistic expressions by commissioning her to design a calendar and greeting cards for our agents to present to their special clients. By doing so we could add a touch of beauty to a practical gift that would be remembered and appreciated by our customers each time the calendar was moved to another month and another wonderful work of art was reveled. It is our intention to use her skills in the future as we continue to offer our agents the opportunity to provide a striking and unusual gift to maintain positive relationships with their clientele.
In addition to the artwork she produces, her team of creative associates has provided her completed works in a timely and professional manner.

The exhibition of Photographer June H. Lee, whose photos express ‘the breath of nature’ instead of its shape, is taking place in Café Latte in West Los Angeles from January 3rd to February 28th, 2006.
June H. Lee will be exhibiting approximately 40 photos and majority of her work denotes the beginning. It’s because the exhibit takes place on the beginning of the new year.

The beginning of a day that starts off with a ray of light out of pitch darkness, the beginning of life expressed in a bird bursting out of the waters, the beginning of the massive movement brought on by the wind over the sands. She prepared the beginning of a new year with these natures that articulate the beginning. She especially spent numerous nights stepping out of her home in the dark twilight to capture the sky and sunrise in the dawn.

She reminisces how beautiful, magical and inspirational as if her heart would explode as she held her breath and waited long time in the shivering temperature at the sea, in the desert and on the mountains. Slender but forceful ray of light opens the door to the beginning of radiance. She clicked her shutter while she had her eyes on this slender ray of light. Then she sees the beginning through the lens and through the photo, she saw magnificence of God, the forceful yet perfect order and beauty of creation.

Through this exhibition, June H. Lee wants to spread out this great order of God and mystic beauty of nature with many.

She stepped into the Fine Art (Oil Painting) 20 years ago when she came to the US, she fell into photography after encountering Photographer Ham, Chul Hoon. As she attended “Visual Worship Institute”, she naturally transitioned into being a photographer. Afterwards, she fell deeply into the nature.

Even when she painted, she was fond of the nature but that was more of her interpretation of what she visually saw and then transferring it onto the canvas. Now she is just conveying what God created, just as is, to photography. Therefore, without pre-conceived notion, she has to be immersed in that power. She asserts that she felt the power of art during this process. She states it’s because of mystic nature which cannot be explained with mere humanity.

After she began photography, she started to hear the breath of nature that comes from the marks of wind on the sand to the majestic beginning that blushes the sky. Because she has to convey whatever is before her just as it is and that she needs to be more honest, she reflects, perhaps, that being a photographer is the most unadulterated artist.

Nonetheless, she realizes that her moment with fine art has become a great strength for her. Lately, June H. Lee is receiving a great review about her angle and the color schemes. Thanks to the fine art background she passed through when she began her work with photography.

She has recently exhibited her Photography compilation “Mongolia” along with fellow photographers from Visual Worship Institute and it was received with great response so she has even bigger anticipation for the beginning of the New Year.

Seeing the photos in this exhibition, we can certainly read her amazement, excitement and her delight. The exhibit space, Café Latte, is a familiar place where artists with good reputations in all fields come under the subject of art in life.

We live in the age of photographic flood. We no longer perceive the photos. Photos are concealed. Photos are too familiar to us and it embraces us. Digital flood, the visual pollution…,

Naturalistic Photo Artist, June Lee. “My photography is a part of my faith. I feel the work of His hands in all places I visit, the Universe by God’s creation. The universe can be expressed with words, music and pictures, but as for me, I chose the camera. I do not capture the light, the wind or the breath God created. I only seek the magnificence of His Glory.”

Photo Artist June Lee uses the light quite masterfully in her Analog work that is best represented by film. The light in the nature in the photograph re-creates two dimensional flat space into the measured third dimensional universe retains time. Her work is sculpt, artistic and literary. In June Lee’s photos, there are affection and coziness of the nature, which we know will return someday.
