Photography is an interesting art form where people become familiarized with photographers who dedicate their entire lives to it. People who do photography as a hobby often get overshadowed by the natural lust for wanting to grind out a photography career.
It’s a shame since there are so many great photographers who aren’t primarily known for photography. For example, Jason Lee is an actor who is recognized for his role as Earl Hickey in the television comedy series My Name Is Earl. Lee is also a writer, skateboarder, and photographer who first became interested in the art form in the early 2000s.
Lee made a name for himself in photography after releasing a photo book of 184 pages of Polaroid and Fuji Instant Film photographs from 2006 to 2016. Since, Lee has released A Plain View, a photo book consisting of color 4×5 photographs from his exploration of rural and urban America, had a photography exhibit in the Philbrook Museum of Art, and has most recently published Gold Dust Rush, a photo book consisting of black and white photographs of rural America.
