InFrame - Zun Lee







Zun Lee is a physician, self-taught photographer and visual storyteller based in Toronto. He originally picked up a camera to relieve work-related stress and quickly developed an exacting eye for documentary photography and street portraiture. His intimate projects “Father Figure” and “Fade Resistance” challenge media stereotypes of African-American families and have garnered the attention of The New York Times, The New Yorker, and Magnum Foundation, among others.

"Black people are not at all what the media tries to tell us.  Because a lot of black men are there for their children, but in ways that the media doesn't want to show."
