Corky Lee, 'unofficial Asian American photographer laureate'

One of Lee's photo subjects was Jimmy Kirikatani, a formerly homeless artist and Japanese internment camp internee. 
For almost 40 years, New York-based photographer Corky Lee — dubbed the  “undisputed unofficial Asian American photographer laureate” — has captured iconic images of Asian Pacific Americans in political movements and social contexts.
 
Lee comes to campus on Thursday, Feb. 20, 5-7 p.m., to show his photos and discuss his work in a UC Regents Lecture at the Public Affairs Building, Room 2355. Presented by the UCLA Asian American Studies Department, Urban Planning Department, Asian Pacific Coalition and Asian American Studies Center.
