Arrested is the biography of world famous photographer, Jim Lee, giving us a broad insight into his incredible career spanning over six decades. After emigrating to Australia at just seventeen, Lee began establishing his career on return to London while shooting with bands such at the Kinks and the Who. As his reputation grew he naturally progressed onto fashion photography and quickly became in high demand during the late sixties and seventies, notably working with Vogue edit-in-chief, Anna Wintour, as well as collaborating with designers including Ossie Clark, Yves St Laurent and Gianni Versace, and appearing in Elle, The Sunday Times and The New York Times.
In the late seventies he produced a body of over 400 advertising works with huge brands including Levi's, BMW, British Airway, Esso and Shell, as well as working on numerous film productions. Lee's earlier work can be found on display in galleries around the world, including the permanent collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
Harbouring a life-long love of film, Lee describes his photographs as 'still moments of movies', and his gritty, photo-journalistic style has become synonymous with the romantic soft-focus frenzy of the sixties and seventies. Arrested shows us the development of Jim Lee's career, from punk to pop-art, including rarely seen images perfectly interspersed between some of his most iconic photographs.
