Bud Lee: Picturemaker

Not just a local legend and sentimental favorite, Bud Lee’s important ’60s and ’70s photographs were shown in beautiful new digital prints at the Tampa Museum of Art. The show was curated by Jill Jimenez under Emily Kass’ directorship, before both became casualties of Tampa’s ongoing museum upheaval. Every one of Lee’s photographs — from portraits of rock ’n’ roll icons Janis Joplin and Mick Jagger to Florida’s carnival of weirdness — shines in its uniqueness.
