B. United States 1962
Throughout her career, Jocelyn Lee has explored the tactile qualities of the living world through photography. Lee is driven by existential themes, including those of sexuality, family, death and ageing. Spanning portraiture, landscape and still life, Lee’s work frequently questions our perceptions of beauty. In particular, Lee focuses on female subjects to examine pre-conceived notions of the body and ideals of appearance. Her richly descriptive colour works emphasise the tonal and textural richness of foliage, fabrics and flesh.
Jocelyn Lee was born in the United States in 1962. She received her BA in philosophy and visual arts from Yale University and her MFA in photography from Hunter College. Lee taught photography at Princeton University from 2003-2012 and at Maine College of Art from 1993-2001. She has been a visiting artist at Yale University, Bowdoin College, Mass College of Art, and New York University. Lee has exhibited internationally, and her work is housed in the collections of many notable institutions, including The Yale Museum of Art, New Haven, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and The Museum Folkwang, Essen.
