In 2012, Lee was commissioned by Discover Japan to do a complete issue on the a avant-garde artist Yayoi Kusama.

Taking up the project, he documented her working on her upcoming exhibitions at her Tokyo studio and around the world, shooting her at a multitude of high end galleries such as the Museo National de Arte in Reina Sofia, the Pomipidou Centre in Paris, the Tate Modern in London, and the Whitney Museum in New York City. In addition to these exhibitions, they would attend openings to Louis Vuitton shops around the world, documenting the collaboration with Kusama and Marc Jacobs for a one year residency.

From these images and experiences birthed the exhibition ‘The Universe of an Imagination’ hosted at the Eye of Gyre Gallery. This show would display a collection of images taken over 3 years of traveling with Kusama, depicting her life and accurately capturing the essence of her artistic soul and character.

“What superb images these are! I am so pleased. Benjamin Lee is a artist who has captured the very essence of my life and my art” Yayoi Kusama, 2014

As his career continued to grow his collaborators and connections with the fashion and advertising world. Working with such publications as Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue and National Geographic and capturing the essence of some of the world’s greats models, actors and visionaries, Benjamin Lee has proven himself a powerhouse in the medium with no sign of stopping.

“What you can imagine, you can create.” – Benjamin Lee June 2014
