Although over the past twenty years of her life as a professional photographer, Asia Lee has photographed prominent personalities such as Madonna, Michael Jackson, Joe Torre and President George Bush, her true passion is capturing the beauty of the natural world.


Ms. Lee, who was born in the province of Cheju, Korea, on an island known as a center for shamanism and the presence of spirits, has a strong belief in the healing power of images. The high quality photos in this exhibition are 60” or larger and focus on such serene moments as snow falling gently on a tree, marsh grasses blowing in the wind, sea water flowing over well-worn rocks, and a shoreline softened by an autumn mist. Now living in Dix Hills, NY, the artist took many of these photographs along the shores of Long Island Sound at Sunken Meadow and Crab Meadow parks.

Asia Lee devotes much of her time to charitable work, and, while participating in a medical mission to Nigeria a year ago, learned of the healing powers of the holistic practice of Reiki. She has since gained Reiki certification herself and seeks to merge its therapeutic effect with her photography. This exhibition is her way of sharing her epiphany with others.
