Andy Lee's waiting room photography depicts the emotional purgatory we're stuck in when we're waiting for something. The series captures a sense of excruciating loneliness, boredom and anxiety that we tend to feel, depending on what it is we're waiting for.

We sit in waiting rooms for a variety of reasons; it could be something as innocuous as a dental cleaning, or as frightening as waiting for scary test results. We wait to see doctors, lawyers, accountants, government council and a variety of other professionals. We wait for friends, family members, work contacts and casual acquaintances. At any given time of the day, we could be waiting for someone or something. Our lives are punctuated by moments of delay, anticipation and yearning for something else.

Lee thoughtfully explores this strange sensation of limbo with his awkwardly poignant series.
