For forty years, Lee documents the Asian American community set in backdrop of New York. His stunning contemporary images challenge centuries-old ideologies and representations, while reconstructing and redefining the Asian American population. The exhibition is held from June 8-August 14th. Members are invited to the opening reception sponsored by AAJANY and Asian American Legal Defense Fund (AALDEF) on Saturday, June 25.

“I document the history because I need to leave it for another generation that I’ll never see or hear. If I don’t document it, who will?” says Lee. “So I’ve taken on this quest, kind of like a Don Quixote mission.” (from NY1)
