As a young photographer who is still in high school and is trying to understand the world and her reality, Emily Lee uses the camera to express herself and feelings. Her photos are her personal diary and observations of life.

This series certainly feels sentimental. The main subjects -- the deer and the girl -- convey a strong feeling of innocence and beauty, which is also captured by the soft light and the green landscape. The artist declares in her Flickr profile, "I'm not exactly one who knows how to express my emotions or how I am feeling. Photography allows me to express myself. In some ways looking at life through a lens helps me see things more clearly." These pieces are poetic and expressive; they show Emily Lee's desire and curiosity to explore the world.
