Debra Spark, professor of English, has written an article, “Authentic States: Jocelyn Lee’s Nudes,” for Elysian magazine.
“Jocelyn Lee is not a still-life photographer,” Spark wrote. “The work that has brought her recognition from the Guggenheim Foundation, as well as inclusion in major art museums and exhibitions at galleries stateside and in Europe, has always been portraits, often nudes, and frequently nudes in the natural world. Sometimes those nudes—draped on moss in a forest, hair tied to a tree, or even visually merging with the surrounding vegetation—suggest landscapes. But still life? No, that was something new.”
