Korean photographer Daesung Lee took his inspiration for his series ‘Futuristic Archeology’ from the threatened culture of Mongolia’s nomadic tribes. Thirty-five percent of Mongolians still live this way and their culture is being threatened by desertification attributed to climate change.
“I have thought that this nomadic life depending on their environment and land could have the same destiny as these collections due to the climate change caused by our hands,” says Lee. “We better preserve its original society or culture alive than collecting in museum as a fossil. So I have brought a conception of recreating museum diorama in a real place, real people and their livestock and real time to my work.”
