About this book
Eleven portfolios of Dunkel’s work, created between 1985 and 2008, are presented in this book. Throughout her career, Dunkel has consistently used the silver gelatin process, even in the wake of digital photography. She has been honored with solo exhibitions of her work since the late 1980s and has been the recipient of several grants for her work, including two Florida Individual Fellowship grants. Her work can be found in corporate and private collections.
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, Director of Photography, Crealdé School of Art, Winter Park, Florida
