Nikki S. Lee

Nikki S. Lee: THE SENIORS PROJECT

Nikki S. Lee: THE HISPANIC PROJECT

The woman on the far right (top photo) and the woman in the bottom photo are the same person, photographer Nikki S. Lee.

If you are interested in social commentary, constructed photography, or the mutability of race, culture, gender and class, then look at the photography of Niki S. Lee.

Here is a description of her work.


Makers gotta make

Hat of Illumination

Hey Savannah! This post is for you. Can you hear Barry Manilow singing, This One’s for You?

No? You can’t.
Really?
Why?
Even if you listen really carefully?
Well, fine. I don’t think it’s creepy.
What is possibly creepy about Mr. Barry Manilow? Behold! His enviable mane! His 1970s sparkle! Savannah, don’t you know that he writes the songs, the songs that make the young girls cry?

Anyhow, during our in-progress critique, I mentioned photographers who liked to create objects specifically for the purpose of photographing them. I referred, in a slapdash manner, to these artists as “makers”.

Here is a list of those artists. This list is by no means exhaustive and some of the artists listed only use that methodology periodically. Feel free to augment the list.

The above image is from a series of hats that I made during graduate school. Makers gotta make, yo.
