Myong Ho Lee

This young South Korean artist does kind of a magic trick: it's simple, it's engaging, and it makes you wonder how he did it.

Find more of his work at this site:
"Myoung Ho Lee, a young artist from South Korea, has produced an elaborate series of photographs that pose some unusual questions about representation, reality, art, environment and seeing.

Simple in concept, complex in execution, he makes us look at a tree in its natural surroundings, but separates the tree artificially from nature by presenting it on an immense white ground, as one would see a painting or photograph on a billboard."
