About Lee

Lee Dunkel is a nationally known black and white Florida landscape photographer whose expansive body of work includes eleven portfolios. She has been honored with solo and group exhibitions and has been the recipient of several grants. Her work can be found in corporate, public, and private collections. Lee participated in workshops under well-known photographers John Sexton and George Tice to learn the fine art of printmaking using the classic gelatin silver printing process. You can read more about Lee on her About page.

Every photograph and print by the photographer Lee Dunkel is a performance—as classic as a Renoir, as edgy and smart as Brubeck's ‘Take Five’—and faithful to the nature of the artist."

— Stephen Crowley, Staff photographer, The New York Times

What viewers see when looking at Lee Dunkel’s work is much more than a photographic reproduction. Her views of the landscape are more intimate and personal than the grand views of her West Coast influences, such as Adams, Weston, and Sexton; and the work is more aptly described as an emotional view of a natural scene, containing elements of abstraction. Dunkel does not aim to preserve a remote, unobtainable grandeur in the landscape, but instead invites the viewer into her world, and, in that process, we often get our feet wet."

— Rick Lang, Former Director of Photography, Crealdé School of Art, Winter Park, Florida
