Sex of Nature II explores areas of wilderness, seemingly untouched by human beings. The stark and isolated landscapes invoke feelings of loneliness, awe, and the notion that the natural environment is harsh and unforgiving. The series contrasts the differing geographic elements of Mustang, Nepal, and Tasmania, Australia. Lee captures the wide and deep ancient forests of the Tasmanian landscape, conveying a feminine energy. The Mustang land of Nepal is mountainous, bare and dry, carrying more of a masculine energy. The overall series is an exploration of the many different surfaces and moments that are situated on earth at any time.
Thomas K Lee lived in Tasmania. Having observed the untouched beauty of the state, he seeks to share the natural environment. In 2014, Lee moved to Melbourne to formally study photography at RMIT University. His photography captures the essence of nature combining human inhabitation of space.
