Sovereign – Jocelyn Lee
May 19, 2020
Sensual. Vibrant. Self-possessed. The women visualized in Jocelyn Lee’s new monograph SOVEREIGN are individual, yet iconic in how she chooses to frame each one, subtly shifting focus and leading the viewer to engage subject and environment equally in the immersive scenes of her creation.
Sovereign, emerged out of two bodies of work (“Dark Matter” and the series and traveling exhibition “The Appearance of Things”) and a decades-long practice of what Lee refers to as a longitudinal study, portraits of people over time.
