I work with the journey we are all on; in a figurative mode of expression, conveying a meaning other than the literal; using symbolic figures, actions or places, my landscapes.

Self-portrait, Mestre, Italy 2011 Minny Lee
USA

Nominee

"Self-portrait, Mestre, Italy 2011"
Self-portrait, Mestre, Italy 2011 was an attempt to incorporate my personal history and the history of the architectural place. It was taken at a former convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie that was occupied by the army during and after wars, used as military barracks. After being vacant for 25 years, the Fondazione di Venezia acquired it to use for the future 20th century museum. The ghostly place inspired me to do a self-portrait series reflecting my dark memories from the past. I tried to portray an uncertain, fragile and dreamlike state of mind that overshadowed my youth.
