Lee Glazer’s body of work is characterized by rigorousness and dedication to her material practice. She has an unapologetic passion for showing the common humanity beneath the diverse outward forms of people and their locations on this planet. The more attention that she pays to detail, the glint in the eye of a Moroccan woman sharing tea in her home; the wall of memorabilia in a senior, Mid-American gentleman’s den, the more Glazer convinces us that we needn’t take appearances for granted. Universally one’s own true story is told in every picture.
