“I DON’T UNDERSTAND”
On display through Nov. 21 at film photography shop treehouse, “I Don’t Understand” showcases images taken by photographer Lila Lee during the year she spent living in China. As Lee explains on treehouse’s website, the series is titled “I Don’t Understand” because it’s the phrase that she said most when she was living there.
She admits that it’s one of a few phrases that she knew how to say in Chinese, but “also because I really just didn’t understand why people in China did some things, not in a bad way, but more of a fascination! Whether it be good or bad, I was in love with how different things were.”
A graduate of Art Center College of Design in California, Lee focuses her photography on realistic documentations of life.
