When Daniel Lee talks about making his fantastical man-beast portraits, he sounds more like a plastic surgeon than a photographer. “I have to change the eyeball from a human eyeball to an animal eyeball; I have to remove the eyebrows to make the nose broader,” he says matter-of-factly about the computer alterations he makes. What he ends up with are eerie portraits he calls “Manimals”, such as his recent “1949-Year of the Ox” and “1962-Year of the Tiger”.
