Jocelyn Lee

JOCELYN LEE (1962, Naples, Italy) approaches her photographic subjects looking to reveal not simply the individuality of those who pose before her camera. She also wants to convey something deeper about how her subjects confront the place where they live and the situation in which they find themselves. This interest in the psychological dimensions of character is emblematic of her portraiture— whether she is working on an editorial assignment or on an independent project.
Jocelyn Lee received a BA from Yale University in 1986 and an MFA in Photography from the City University of New York at Hunter College in 1992. She is the recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship (2001) and currently teaches a Princeton University and has held positions at the Maine College of Art, Bowdoin College, New York University, and Molloy College, Rockville Center, NY.
