"The lightness and the darkness around us fascinates me -- how our outer world can reflect our inner world and can somehow be intuitively an extension and expression of ourselves. I have been passionate about the art, science and magic of photography from the time I was a child -- at which time my dad converted a small bathroom into a darkroom." 

Lee Atwell pursues her passion of chasing and capturing light and shadows unique to the Southwest, making regular sojourns from her home in Seattle, WA to New Mexico.

Lee is a curator and editor of 'StreetWise'; TheAppWhisperer -- a column dedicated to street photography. She has received several international photography awards with her work featured in publications, websites and web-magazines -- as well as exhibitions in several cities in the USA, Canada, Italy, Belgium, Hungary, France and Portugal.
