Don Cook | Tom Lee (27:46)

He is drawn to a face that tells a story. He is drawn to light that reveals the shadows of a crease. He is drawn to the moment when the shadow and light dancing over a face perfectly align, the split second when all is revealed. J. Don Cook is one of Oklahoma’s most lauded photojournalists, capturing poignant images in black and white that do more than snare the interest, they speak to the heart and mind of the soul you can see in a face. Join Gallery in October as we meet the man behind the lens and take a look at his latest project, a newly published collection of his work called “Shooting from the Hip”.

Tom Lee was one of Oklahoma’s premier photographers, perhaps one of the best known in the state. His images stirred more than the heart and the mind and he did it all while confined to a wheelchair. This photographer’s body of work is now complete. Lee passed away in 2010, but his art and his story live on. A fine art photographer, traditional black and white silver-based film and paper were Lee’s medium of choice. His art can be found in many public and private collections throughout the United States and through the course of his 25 years as an artist, Lee won several awards and accolades. This October, Gallery remembers Tom Lee, “Writing With Light”.
