About Jason Lee
A native of Southern California, Jason Lee is a film photographer, actor, producer, and director. Having established a successful career as a professional skateboarder during skateboarding’s pivotal late 80s and early 90s period, Lee would go on to pursue acting in 1994, which would lead to working in film, television, and voiceover, and with such directors as Kevin Smith, Cameron Crowe, Lawrence Kasdan, and Rebecca Miller. Despite retiring from skateboarding in 1995, Lee continued co-managing Stereo Skateboards with co-founder and former professional skateboarder Chris Pastras. In 2017, the two longtime friends celebrated the company’s 25-year-anniversary.
In 2002, Lee developed a passion for photography and dedicated himself to pursuing the medium as a creative profession. His photographic works have since been featured in multiple group and solo exhibitions, magazines, and books, one of which, 2018’s A PLAIN VIEW, marked the debut publication for Film Photographic, the Instagram film photography sharing platform and photography boo¬k publisher Lee founded in 2015. In June 2019, Lee hosted OK: Jason Lee Photographs at Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, Oklahoma, his first ever solo museum exhibition. The exhibition showcased a selection of both color and black-and-white film photographs made throughout Oklahoma during a six-month period in 2018 and ran through December 2019. A book of selected works from the series will be released at a later date. In December 2020, UK publisher Stanley/Barker released IN THE GOLD DUST RUSH, a 112-page book featuring a selection of Lee’s previously unpublished American black-and-white film photographs spanning 2008 to 2020. In summer 2021, Lee will release a book of Galveston, Texas, photographs in collaboration with Galveston Historical Foundation, with Film Photographic to publish a second printing of A PLAIN VIEW winter 2021.
