Dear Corky


For over 50 years, New York native Corky Lee photographed his hometown’s Chinatown and Asian American communities around the country. With a strong sense of social justice, he captured activists, celebrities, and everyday heroes with equal passion, taking over 100,000 photos. Sadly, while documenting the latest rise of anti-Asian hate crimes, Corky fell to COVID. Through his own words and pictures, DEAR CORKY reveals the man behind the camera.
