Carl Lee

Carl Lee is an award-winning media artist based in Buffalo, N.Y., who works in non-fiction, experimental, and documentary film and video, both single channel and multi-channel  installations. His work has been programmed nationally and internationally. His wide-ranging subject matter includes the urban landscape, community organizations, and the play of light. “There’s magic in the mundane and I’m trying to capture some of it in moving pictures,” he has observed.
