Evan Lee: Captures

Since earning his BFA at the University of British Columbia in 1997, Vancouver photographer Evan Lee has received an enormous amount of critical attention and awards. Described as a member of the “second generation of Vancouver School photographers”, Lee provides in this survey exhibition an array of objects captured by his flatbed scanner.

The scanner, like the pinhole camera, photogram or copy machine, is another simple technology capable of producing art-like imagery. Lee capitalizes on the photographic language unique to flatbed scanners, odd prisms, light beams and random digital glitches, to produce images of ginseng roots, drafting curves and camera parts. “Working against the grain of the technology,” as he puts it, he is as interested in the artefacts of the media as the function.

Through his serial photographs, he captures the images with such precise detail and illusionism that they are almost surrealistic. His work clearly reminds us that photography is essentially a representational tool. Lee has had successful solo and group exhibitions in Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto, Charlottetown, Shanghai and Seattle. A catalogue accompanies the exhibition at Presentation House.
