Taking a sensitive look at the most subtle moments of life, the painter and photographer D. Yee directs his “real life movie” on the Life as Cinema series. His images, although as powerful as the ones you’d see on a well-directed movie, keep all the natural beauty of day-to-day situations, revealing (or creating) their poetry.
The artist, based in New York but working worldwide, affirms that Life as Cinema is an endless project – at least for now. “The series takes on its own direction organically – like life – as I go on. Like life, or most of it, I have very little control over what I photograph. The only dictation in the series is how I select an image for it – like a movie director editing. I am always looking for that subtle feeling or look of a production still. What I do not control or cannot predict is how Life as Cinema will end”.
