Over the past couple years, Lee has been researching the ideology of the Hong Kong people, colonial history, collective memory, geo-political relations and the subjective approach in documentary. Lee also interested in the social and political issues of contemporary life around the globe, he has been focusing on Western China and various locations within the England. He sets out to discover the possibility of documentary photography, to expand its horizons and to work with projects that convey his personal concerns.
