William “Bill” Lee was born on the Southeast side of Washington, DC, and raised in Prince George’s County, MD. He is a product of a rich and vibrant culture visible in his images. Lee was introduced to the photography world through his Dad, Orlando Lee, who developed darkroom images in their basement. As a college student, he gained more knowledge from his Uncle, Granville Lee, who was a professional wedding photographer. This support cultivated a 20-year long photography career. Lee is inspired by the work of Gordon Parks, Richard Avedon, Jamel Shabazz, and Annie Leibovitz.
