JASON LEE: IN THE GOLD DUST RUSH - SIGNED BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER
(LEE, JASON). Lee, Jason. Stanley / Barker, I00210204, 2020. First Edition. 10 x 11 in., 112 pages. Hardbound. Photography Monograph. New/No Jacket - As Issued.
For the past fourteen years, artist, actor and skateboarder Jason Lee has traversed America making quiet, reflective photographs detailing the landscape and its oft-overlooked and forgotten places.
His new book "In The Gold Dust Rush" draws together eighty-four never before published black and white photographs from the last twelve of those years into a meandering journey from the mountains to the city.
“Since my first photographic outings in my native California in 2006, where I explored a more rural, perhaps neglected face of the state, and the many subsequent outings zigzagging through the West Coast, the Southwest, and Texas, I remain fascinated by these American scraps, by evidence of cancellation and departure, and the environmental contradictions that make up our collective everyday view. These conflicts, at once strange and beautiful, this is where the questions are. It’s then and now splitting time, man and nature pushing up against each other, and progress forever forcing itself on the contented. And somewhere in the middle you make pictures.” Jason Lee

JASON LEE: TX | CA 17 - SIGNED BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER
(LEE, JASON). Lee, Jason. London, UK: Stanley / Barker, I00230623. 2023. First Edition. 10 x 11". Pictorial Wrappers. Photography Monograph. New/New. 978-1913288587112pp, profusely illustrated in b&w. "The pictures in Jason Lee’s forthcoming monograph were made in the summer of 2017 on a drive from his then adopted home state of Texas to Los Angeles, where he’d lived prior and from where he set out to start photographing from the road in 2006."For the past fourteen years, artist, actor, and skateboarder Jason Lee has traversed America making quiet, reflective photographs detailing the landscape and its oft-overlooked and forgotten places. TX | CA 17 is the first time Lee has published images from a single outing. They are presented in geographical and (rough) chronological order - North Texas, NM, AZ, the California desert, and finally DTLA, where we see the gentleman awaiting his bus. The exposures were made primarily along and surrounding Highways 287, 40/66, 62, and 10."
“Many of these places I’ve come to know quite well, with some documented frequently before and since this particular drive. It’s always a pleasure revisiting the familiar—these somehow comforting landmarks; these reminders—and equally exciting to discover new sights, make new pictures, and collect new memories. So you keep going. After sixteen years of photographing outside, I remain fascinated by the American landscape and all its parts both beautiful and curious.” - Jason Lee

JASON LEE: GALVESTON - SIGNED BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER
(LEE, JASON). Lee, Jason. Galveston, TX: Galveston Historical Foundation & Film Photographic, 2021. First Edition 1/2500. Oblong 4to. Debossed Boards. Photography Monograph. As New/No Jacket - As Issued. 176pp, 98 illustrations in color and duotone. "Between the months of January and April of 2017, I roamed Texas sporadically with my old Speed Graphic 4 x 5 camera for what turned out to be twenty-five days and roughly 5000 miles. I'd moved to Texas just two years prior and thought it only made sense to see more of the big state than I'd seen before as a visiting photographer. And so, I did. Up into the Panhandle, a bit east, central, south, and West Texas. 111 of the 298 exposures I made would end up being printed in the 2018 book "A Plain View.' But no matter how many miles and real estate I'd covered on those travels, I never thought to make it far enough south to meet Galveston. And then, perhaps ironically, the Galveston Historical Foundation contacted me in May of 2020 to see if I might like to extend my Texas series by making photographs in Galveston. I was happy to accept the offer, as perhaps the whole of my Texas story had yet to be completed. And so that November I drove my car from Los Angeles, where I was living once more, to Galveston with my cameras, in the passenger seat my friend and fellow photographer Raymond Molinar who would assist me in my efforts to document as strange and beautiful a land as I'd ever seen while also making not only behind-the-scenes photographs of my process but his own photographs of this remarkably standstill place. And the payoff of the experience is not just that I've now seen more of Texas than I ever thought I would but that this new book would stand as my favorite thus far, if not an extension of the mainland Texas photographs before it."
