Elizabeth Gabrielle Lee


Elizabeth Gabrielle Lee is a photographer based between London and Singapore. Her images, romantic yet meditative, navigate the nuances of the postcolonial figure and landscape, in reference to the contemporary now and the historical past. Themes of identity, memory, and femininity weave in and out of her visual storytelling—working in tandem with tools of subversion and mimicry. She is interested in displacing the image of the Other, particularly that of women from East and Southeast Asia. 

Founder, editor, and contributor to her most recent project, XING, is a collaborative photo book that sheds light on the trailblazing lives of East Asian women. XING champions the vagabonds, challenges hegemony, and celebrates a oneness through image and prose. The inaugural volume of XING (2017) explores the current landscape of women in China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan.
