Starry Night Photographs of Landscapes Covered in Lights

Korean photographer Lee Eunyeol creates beautiful nighttime scenes by installing lights in various landscapes. His artist statement reads,

Starry night expresses private spaces given by night and various emotions that are not able to be defined and described in the space. I’ve chosen analogue type for the expression which attempts to install electric bulbs in an objet to be expressed using back space of night by taking advantage of huge studio. There are two spaces in photographs. One is a space before electric bulbs of familiar landscape are installed and the other is a space after electric bulbs expressed by dispersing personal emotion are installed. Unified light from these two spaces generates a mysterious landscape.

In each of his photos, it almost looks as if the stars have fallen from the sky onto the ground.

His work is currently being exhibited at the Gana Art Space in Seoul, South Korea.

    I really didn’t dig any of these until I saw the last one. The light in the cracks of the earth are superb, wish he had made the lighting softer and more uniform. Rope light perhaps?

    Same as John Milleker, I can’t really say I’m “wowed” by any of these. I bit of a vignette overdose. 
    The last one is clever, though. 

  • James Cantu

    Yeah I can only say I like 2 and 5.   Seems like it just needs some fine tuning and could be very impressive.

    Perhaps he could have used a series of long exposures and “drawn” the light in using a hand-held LED light. He could have done it in sections and blended the photos together. Hmmmm… give me an idea!
