Artist Statement

This body of work is about the transient nature of being a bystander and the temptations of voyeurism. A passenger, a tourist or a local person can flow from one type to another seamlessly. Each person is alone in public but maintaining a small private space, a bubble if you will; that moves with him. These moments are fascinating and intriguing. I continue to develop this series by going to different public areas to document people in those environments. These portraits are from Trafalgar Square in London, San Marco Square in Venice, and Time Square in New York.

Suta Lee has a Master of Fine Art in Painting degree from Cornell University. He has been exhibiting his work around the country and is in many private and public collections including Tennessee State Museum. Currently he teaches painting and digital photography at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tennessee.
