Jungjin Lee's style for Wind used high contrast, lopsided photos of wind devastated areas to emphasize what was destroyed in these rural communities.

In these photos, the divide between the subject, the crisp outlines, and the negative space that is the sky and the ground in the piano picture. This eliminates most gradients in these photos, leading to things being colored very dark or very light. These gradients that this gets rid of are usually very big indicators of texture and dimension in photographs, so by getting rid of texture, you emphasize the contrast that the objects have with the negative space, specifically in Lee's photos, the contrast between the sky and ground and the devastated landscape. 

There is also an imbalance in these pictures where one side is heavily filled with negative space, while the other side is the object being photographed.
