Jennifer Takaki’s PHOTOGRAPHIC JUSTICE: THE CORKY LEE STORY honors the colorful life and legacy of NYC Chinese American photographer Corky Lee. Famous for having taken over 800,000 photos of the Asian American community, Corky had committed his life to documenting our ever-growing histories of resistance, struggle, and celebration. Lee’s photographs of Asian America capture the indescribable, offering visual portals into the inner worlds of human life and connection. From photos of anti-war movements to hot dog eating contests, Lee’s artful vignettes seem to live and breathe in this documentary, sharing with us his reverence for the vibrant and interwoven souls of Asian America.
