Lot Details


In this image from the 'Ohio Project,' Nikki S. Lee adopts the guise of the rural American farmer. By adapting herself to the highly diversified roles and sub-cultures she interacts with, Lee truly transcends age, race, lifestyle, and gender with her in-depth approach to photography. As exemplified with this image, Lee also maintains the use of time-stamping in each of her works, defining their exact moment in her photographic career.

Nikki S. Lee (B. 1970, South Korea) is a contemporary artist whose photographs often focus on identity and social behaviors, specifically how consciously individuals are of the culture they interact in. Lee focuses on various ethnic groups and sub cultures, studying their fashions, mannerisms, and behaviors, then mimics them in order to interact with them over the course of several weeks. By adopting their culture, dress, and attitudes, Lee truly submerges herself with the subjects she studies, making her images far more poignant than the average photographers.

It is in absolute perfect condition, never shown, never exposed to light, never framed, always kept in the box.
