J O C E L Y N L E E : HE/SHE/THEY
Jocelyn Lee approaches portraiture directly and honestly, by photographing women from all stages of life for her series Women are Beautiful (2011). Bonnie's forbearing eyes look beyond us, with relaxed and hunched posture. "We are human animals", as Sharon Olds describes, "What is this flesh, anyway?!”. Bonnie presents herself with poise, with mystery; an unconventional portrait for one posing in the nude, but with a soft-spoken comfort. Lee wants to affirm the notions of beauty of all body types and allude to the complex internal life of her subjects.
