Edge presents Corky Lee’s Asian America: Fifty Years of Photographic Justice book event, celebrating the work of iconic late photographer Corky Lee with a conversation with Mae Ngai, Cathy Park Hong, and Mabel Teng.

Corky Lee’s Asian America traces Lee’s decades-long quest for photographic justice, following Asian American social movements for recognition and rights alongside his artistic development as an activist social photographer. Iconic photographs feature protests against police brutality in New York in the 1970s, a Sikh man draped in an American flag after 9/11, and a reenactment of the completion of the transcontinental railroad of 1869 featuring descendants of Chinese railroad workers, and his last photos of community life and struggle during the coronavirus pandemic.
