Icebox Gallery Presents: Grassland photo

Photographs by New York-based photographer H. Lee (a pseudonym) H. Lee spent a year documenting the growing season and culture of cannabis in Humboldt County, California, capturing intimate moments as she lived among the growers. H. Lee’s colorful images reveal a hidden world and a community based on an illegal agriculture. Grassland is a window into a counterculture that has flourished and evolved in the forested hills of Northern Californian. By growing high quality marijuana for many years many of these farmers wrote the book on the production. The Icebox exhibit features 30 color images that are limited in edition, each signed, and available for sale.

The exhibit at Icebox Gallery by H. Lee opens at same time as the release of the beautifully designed book Grassland. H. Lee will be in the gallery and available for book signing Saturday, November 8, 8:30PM – 9:30PM. Other signed books will be available during the run of the exhibit.
