Loft: H529

Lee: I like to be surrounded by art (whether painting or photography) and nature. With the convenience of an iPhone I’ve experimented with capturing images that strike me at the moment as graceful and calming. My favorite type of photographic images are un-posed shots of individuals in beautiful settings, particularly at the Stacks where I live. Several of the shots in the collection include those in which the subject was unaware that he was being photographed (though he is a friend). I also love landscapes that depict vast open spaces because they convey a sense of freedom and the possibility of escape that we experience as children.
