and-white darkroom photography from the days when Lee maintained his own basement darkroom, and more recent color digital photography. These days Lee uses a Canon Rebel T2i, “not too big or heavy,� and able to do “what (he) wants.� Trained as a graphic designer, Lee had his first job with United Press photographers in San Francisco in 1955. He later worked for the Addison-Wesley publishing company in the ‘60s in Palo Alto and Menlo Park. Despite his experience in design, Lee has never before shown his personal work. “I was a closet photographer,� he said. That is, until Roger Broussal, a retired conservator from the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, saw Lee’s work and encouraged the Museum of American Heritage board to show it. “I owe this exhibit to his support and encouragement,� Lee said. The display also features a sample of Lee’s camera collection. (He owns more than 50.) Cameras on display include an Olympus from 1973 that Lee found at Goodwill for $45, and an Omega camera from 1954 that Lee bought after watching a wedding photographer carry two of them (to save time when one ran out of film). “I hope this exhibit will open visitors’ eyes to all the interesting and beautiful things around them — such as the time of day or the quality of the light,� Lee said. “People should be aware.� N What: “Picture This! A History of Photography,� an exhibit of historical cameras and prints, as well as fine-art photos by Wayland Lee Where: The Museum of American Heritage, 351 Homer Ave., Palo Alto When: Through Oct. 31. The museum is open Friday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Cost: Free Info: Go to www.moah.org or call 650-321-1004.
