Identity Documents. Photography. Digital Print
Adam Lee is a freelance photographer and public engagement photographer based in Liverpool. Since completing a photography course at Liverpool Community College in 2006, Adam has gone on to build a career as a documentary photographer. His work centres on personal spaces and the relationship between possessions and identity. With this work he seeks to create still life images in which the objects featured tell stories about their owners. His project Identity Documents, which explores what books say about their owners, was exhibited at the Bluecoat as part of LOOK/13: Liverpool International Photography Festival. He has also produced bespoke editions of this project for the Writing on the Wall Literary Festival and The Wigtown Book Festival. Identity Documents has also been featured in the Royal Photographic Society Contemporary Group Journal. He has since gone on to undertake similar art projects, including his current work, Mix Space, which explores how DJs decorate their rehearsal spaces. Most recently Adam has completed a 1000 kilometer, five month walk across Britain with a donkey called Martin. This journey formed the basis of a documentary portrait project, photographing the people of Britain, from the North of Scotland to the South Coast of England.
