Nikki S. Lee & Cindy Sherman

May 5, 2011 § 1 Comment

After observing particular subcultures and ethnic groups, Nikki S. Lee adopts their general style and attitude through dress, gesture, and posture, and then approaches the group in her new guise. She introduces herself as an artist (though not everyone believes her or takes it seriously), and then spends several weeks participating in the group’s routine activities and social events while a friend or member of the group photographs her with an ordinary automatic “snapshot” camera. Lee maintains control of the final image, however, insofar as she chooses when to ask for a picture and edits what photographs will eventually be displayed.

Although Sherman is a classic, I’m partial to Lee’s work.

One of my faves…

There are far too many great images of her work to post on here and it’s a little confusing if you don’t read the captions on her work so….. you should go to her website
