About The Artist: Sálongo Lee
Photography has been my passion, love and life for as long as I can remember. It became my career more than four decades ago upon my honorable discharge from US Air Force in 1970. This journey 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, who uses photography as my principle medium of creative expression.
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 will and tools to conquer the blank canvas that stares back at you from your third eye.
My tools of choice are photography, mixed media constructions, clay sculpture and Haiku poetry. I 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.
