Janet Lees

Filmic poet and photographer, Janet makes exquisite short videos, molten drops in an ocean of intense experience, some of them very raw indeed.

This stunning piece titled The Huntress has been “selected for the Zebra Poetry Festival in Berlin. The festival runs every two years and is the world’s premier event for poetry film. This year they had 2,000 submissions”. Travel with care, it’s for adults and it does contain words not appropriate for younger eyes.

I first came across Janet on Instagram where she is @janetlees2001; her work fits so well in my newly created dressing up box of things that glitter or thrum, thrash in fury, pause in shadows, or move like a silk scarf in a northern sirocco. These are things that bring peace, questions, and ideas when those capacities seem hidden in fog. That said, she does fog rather well too!

My dressing up box is a place of treasures and the absolute antithesis of Room 101.
