About The Artist: Sálongo Lee
Photography has been my passion, love and life for as long as I can remember. It became my career path more than four decades ago upon my honorable discharge after serving in the US Air Force and opened my first photography studio. That began a journey that has not reached an end and has taken me down many roads, that have crossed, circled around, doubled back and brought me to this point in my life; where I now see myself as a visual artist.
Creating meaningful art, that also conveys a message is akin to going to battle with one's inner voices and imagination. To create and win, one has to have the weapons to conquer the blank canvas that stares back at you from your third eye.
My weapons of choice are photography, mixed media constructions, clay sculpture and Haiku poetry. I will use any and all of them speak to the world with my art; there will be no retreat and no surrender.
Creating art is my life and my passion.
