Artist Profile

Rebecca Lee is an upcoming, passionate young photographer whose works bring out the deepest messages with the simplest compositions.

Her education in Arts stems back to a Special Arts Acceptance program in High School, where extended art classes taught her a variety of artistic mediums, through to a Advanced Diploma in Photography and most recently the completion of a Bachelor of Communications & Contemporary Arts degree at ECU (Major Photography).

It was during her university education era combined with her travels that she decided to progress away from commercial photography and only photograph artistic representations.

Her most recent series of works are inspired by her 2 years living in India and the process of cultural adaption to a foreign environment during this time. She works by selecting and photographing small inanimate objects that are common to most cultures and repetitively placing them in collages, which creates a visual exploration of these objects. Their unity from afar and their absolute variety up close, is the interactive play of travel that she is endeavoring to represent.

This passion for & style of photography has thus been continued through Switzerland, Australia, London, Hong Kong, Macau and Austria.
