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.”
