Simon Lee
Ipswich, United Kingdom

Simon Lee is interested in the things that get ignored, go unnoticed or are simply too 'everyday' to be picked up by most people as they continue with their busy lives. Never posed or modelled, his work shows the humanity within each of us in all its frailty, strength, humour, hope and oddness. His strong personal vision of the world and its inhabitants allows him to take candid photographs on the streets, in shopping centres, and around the countryside of our world. His ethos can be summed up by fellow photographer Matt Hardy: "Beauty can be seen in all things; seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph.”

Hey Simon, Welcome to UGallery! Hopefully, being on UGallery will be a little bit more fun than going to school ;) You can check out our blog post about your new work here: http://blog.ugallery.com/post/36570639119/new-artist-spotlight-elena-baker-nan-davis-kelly

My first day at UGallery, it's like going to school for the first time. Shoelaces done up, check; tie on straight, check; hair combed, check. Ready to spend lunchtime in detention, check. Perhaps I can use those lunchtime detentions to ensure I add some more photographs to my UGallery collection. Thanks so much for having a look. Simon
