Lee Kilpatrick is a photographer based in Somerville, and the director of the Washington Street Art Center near Union Square.
Lee's photography is primarily candid, consisting of photos taken in everyday situations. His recent work has been with panoramic portraits. Past series have included macroscopic shots of Somerville slugs and ants, and aerial self-portraits. He has also made thousands of time-lapse movies of himself and his cat, and played in an old-timey band.
The Washington Street Art Center is a studio building and artists' cooperative founded in 1998. WSAC has a gallery, and presents concerts and classes. The artists of WSAC also hold critique groups and round table discussions. Other activities include Somerville Open Studios (of course) as well as their own crafts fair/open studios in the fall.
Lee has had several shows in the Somerville area, including Gallery 321 at the Washington Street Art Center and the Willoughby & Baltic gallery in Davis Square. Recently he was a participant in a panel discussion at the Mary Baker Eddy Library with Abelardo Morell and Melanie Stetson-Freeman.
