Collected color photographs from Lee's various "projects": entering a defined community in meticulous and elaborate local costume, interacting with its members, and capturing an interaction on film. Lee's visual transformation of herself has variously elicited amusement, fascination, unease, and offense from critics and audiences, as she treats (e.g.) punks, Ohioans, young Japanese people, lesbians, and senior citizens alike as permeable subcultures within which she may move freely, appearing to belong. With an essay by Russell Ferguson and an interview with Lee by Gilbert Vicario. Edited by Lesley A. Martin.
