About the Book
Being Human, by street photographer Lee Fennings, paints a candid and compelling picture of street life and the human condition. Lee creatively captures the banality of our everyday lives in a manner that not only leaves the viewer intrigued, but that stirringly forces us to question what it means to be human.
'I am immediately reminded, as I am with many of the photographs throughout the book, of the work of Robert Krasker, the cinematographer who produced such memorable images in the cult film The Third Man. Fennings, like Krasker, is fascinated with light and shadow'. John Robert Young (Foreword)

Lee Fennings, a street photographer who shoots mainly in black-and-white, is someone that stands firmly by his principles of street photography, with every shot candid in its approach, never interacting with his subject prior to framing the shot. Since Lee's preparation for his photographs is done in-camera, his post-production time is purely dedicated to image selection. Since October 2014, Lee has been living life in the sober lane and is a keen advocate for a more open-minded attitude towards mental health, having suffered himself for many years. In December 2015, Lee published his first street photography book, Pulse, with all profits donated to the registered mental health charity, Mind. Lee's latest book, Being Human, paints a candid and compelling picture of street life and the human condition, and creatively captures the banality of our everyday lives in a manner that not only leaves the viewer intrigued, but that stirringly forces us to question what it means to be human.
