Artist Talk | Zun Lee
Join us for an afternoon artist talk and book signing at Snap! Space with Toronto based photographer Zun Lee.
Zun Lee will be joining us from Toronto and discuss his series 'Father Figure' and sign copies of his newly released book 'Father Figure – Exploring Alternate Notions of Black Fatherhood'
Zun Lee is an award-winning photographer in Toronto, Canada who was named onto PDN’s 30 List in 2014. His intimate visual storytelling centers on uncovering unseen aspects of identity and representation in marginalized communities. Questions around identity play a pivotal role in his latest project Father Figure, for which Zun used his personal journey of discovery and identity formation to examine manifestations of Black fatherhood largely ignored by mainstream media. Lee was born in Germany to what he thought was both a Korean mother and father. As a boy he learned the truth: his black father left his mother upon learning she was pregnant.
The hardcover book to Father Figure was featured in the New York Times and other publications as well as shortlisted for the 2014 Paris Photo Aperture First Photobook Prize.
This afternoon at Snap! Space is not to be missed.
