Tree…#2

Myoung Ho Lee

 

South Korean photographer Myoung Ho Lee adapts his one of his singular Tree photographs for a large-scale billboard set in deCordova’s verdant Sculpture Park. Traveling across South Korea and Mongolia, Lee searches for stunning, solitary trees to photograph. Once he finds the perfect subject, a production crew hoists a blank canvas behind the tree as Lee captures it with his large format camera. He later digitally erases the cranes, ropes, and assistants, leaving only traces of their existence in the final composition. Tree…#2 distills the natural beauty of Lee’s travels, while also revealing the performative nature of photography that is often concealed.

The Gathering of the Manna

oil on panel (67 × 51 cm) — c. 1467 

Musée de la Chartreuse, Douai

The two men to the right are thought to be Moses and Aaron. Aaron is dressed in the outfit of priests: a white gown and a point-shaped hat. They look on as the people gathers the manna from heaven.

The long journey through the desert had left the Jewish people hungry. They started complaining about Moses's leadership. God then had the manna fall from the sky, white bread that tasted like honey.

This oak panel was painted by an unknown master who probably was active in Leiden between 1460 and 1470. Art historians use the subject of this panel for his 'notname', lacking properly documented information.
