Artist Bio
Tara Stallworth Lee is a photographer concentrating in analog processes. She is also a collage artist, papermaker and bookmaker. Her photographs address themes of affinity, kinship, motherhood, and loss. Lee uses any combination of her own images, harvested imagery, handmade papers, and repurposed materials to construct collaged portraits that explore human phenomena from around the globe and throughout history. She regards all of her work as a figurative language through which to communicate and contemplate perceptions of human behavior, interpersonal relationships, and the relevance of the natural landscape to the human condition.

Tara lives and works in Birmingham, Alabama where she is a resident artist at Ground Floor Contemporary. For more than fifteen years, she has enjoyed teaching specialty art classes to youth for The Smithsonian Associates summer camp program in Washington D.C. Previously, Lee worked as the Arts Education Coordinator for Space One Eleven, a visual arts non-profit in Birmingham.
