In 1987, she immersed herself for one year in a project focused on documenting the life of an old man who made his living hunting for wild ginseng. This experience motivated Lee to become a photographer and expand her technical knowledge of photography by traveling to New York and enrolling in New York University to pursue an MA in photography. While in New York, Lee worked for the iconic photographer Robert Frank whose famous travels across the United States may have influenced Lee’s own decision to take a road trip across the United States.


In her travels she encountered the American Desert, a landscape that she is deeply moved by and which becomes the subject of several of her photographic series, including Desert (1990–94), American Desert I – IV (1990-1996), On Road (2000–01), Wind (2004-07) and Remains (2012 - ). Lee photographs these barren landscapes when they are transformed by the tumultuous weather, discarded refuse, decaying structures and by her own photographic process.


Lee currently lives and works in New York City.
