Korey J. Lee | About

Korey was born in California and spent several years abroad in South East Asia during his childhood. He's travelled to over 40 countries across all 7 continents seeking to capture glimpses and tell a story of each country's uniquely rich culture, people and heritage.

 

He hopes that his work can convey the beauty of nature, the wonder of creation and the beauty within each individual human soul. 

 

"It is a serious thing to live in a society of possible gods and goddesses, to remember that the dullest and most uninteresting person you talk to may one day be a creature which, if you saw it now, you would be strongly tempted to worship, or else a horror and a corruption such as you now meet, if at all, only in a nightmare. All day long we are, in some degree, helping each other to one or other of these destinations. It is in the light of these overwhelming possibilities, it is with the awe and the circumspection proper to them, that we should conduct all our dealings with one another, all friendships, all loves, all play, all politics.  There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts, civilization—these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat. But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub, and exploit—immortal horrors or everlasting splendors."

- C.S. Lewis . 1942

 

Korey currently resides in New York City as a technology entrepreneur by day and a professional landscape, portraiture, event photographer by night (and weekends).
