A humanist, poetic, gifted photographer

LJ.: The magician of portraits on FlikR

Iconic images are rare, especially in the mundane world of photojournalism. They must be beautifully and concisely composed. They must impart something unique to a subject we care about, or make us care enough to look more closely at the stories they tell (for if nobody wants to see or hear what you’re trying to tell them, it really doesn’t matter how good the pictures are). And they must be memorable. But when they happen their intense simplicity compresses a host of ideas and emotions in a single frame, making complexity seem transparent…

Lee J. excels at this skill and what results is a breathtaking tour-de-force of photographic insight focusing on the complex reality of the human condition. Whether depicting the magic and innocence of childhood, the pain and anguish of life on the streets, the inevitability of an old age that awaits us all, or the passion and drive of the athlete, all are honestly presented with deep understanding, dignity, compassion and respect.
