Young Love by Sean Lee


Young Love is Sean Lee’s second self published title. It contains portraits of young couples taken over a span of 6 years.

Mostly taken in black and white film, the work speaks to the fleetingness of youth and the romance of teenage relationships.

The work was shortlisted for the Hellerau Portrait Prize in Dresden in 2022. It was also selected by artists Mona Kuhn and Alejandro Cartegena for the LA billboard project.
