Staged photography is a kind of art reconstruction, which, unlike intrinsic realistic nature of photography, presents a dramatic and unrealistic identity to the medium. Many artists from the beginning of photography have entered this field. Two of the artists are Sandy Skoglund, an American female artist, and JeeYoung Lee, a Korean artist. Surprisingly, the images of the two artists are very similar to each other. In this research, it is tried to compare the photoscaptured by these two artists and analyze the similarities and differences between the works identified and study the effects they had on one another. The main question of the current research is which one is the leading artist, and which one is the follower, and whether these similarities are indicative of blind imitation or artistic creation? By a qualitative and quantitative comparison of works and photos taken by the two artists and by analyzing the biographical reviews and interviews with the two artists, one can find a common pattern used by both of them and of course, innovations cannot be ignored. Since Skoglundis older than JayYong, and has begun her career earlier, it can be said with certainty that she has inspired Jay Yong. However, artistic abilities and innovative innovations of Jay Yong are admirable. This way of being inspired and creating artwork creates new and exciting works that can be the guide for photographers and fans in this branch of photography.
