Nikki S. Lee

Photography // Friday, May 09, 2014
In her photographic series “Projects”, South Korean artist Nikki S. Lee fully immersed herself a-la-Daniel Day Lewis into each role she portrayed in her photographs. From ethnic groups to style driven social cliques to the elderly, each person she portrayed took on it’s own project which also served as each image’s title; for example “The Drag Queen Project”, “The Punk Project”, and “The Yuppie Project”.

Adam is about to open his third solo show at Ever Gold Gallery in San Francisco, featuring work that "objectifies a crisis that occurs when one does not look away once the exercise ends."
