Born and raised in New York City, Satchel Lee is a multi-media artist whose work can best be described as portraiture. Through collaborations with her immediate community, and also using herself as a subject, Lee draws inspiration from the quotidian, creating offbeat images that aim to preserve this moment in time, (re) examine memories (especially those clouded by confusion) all the while asking questions around identity and existence.

Lee holds a BFA from the Maurice Kanbar Institute of Film and Television at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. She is currently pursuing her MFA in Photography at School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

In Lee’s photographic exploration, she investigates the profound connection between places and structures and the echoes of trauma that inhabit them. “Holding Places” is an exhibition that immerses viewers into a visual narrative, inviting them to witness the power of space as holders and conduits for personal memory.

By reconstructing these places by hand in model scale and rendering them not as they were, but how she experienced them, she is able to navigate intimate details and hidden narratives that exist within them. The process of crafting these miniatures becomes a meditative contemplation, giving Lee time to sit and reflect on these past events.

Through Lee’s lens, they capture the visual manifestations of the ghosts of the past. The photographs offer glimpses into spaces where anguish, conflict and distress have left their imprints, sometimes visible, sometimes buried beneath layers of time (and self preservation).
