The Best of Young Brooklyn

Maggie Lee



The 25-year-old frequently shoots for VICE, including its covers, and other magazines, and her work has been shown at galleries around the country and world. She’s presently featured in a group show of sorts in the New Museum Store’s window display.

How long have you lived in Brooklyn?
I moved to Brooklyn in 2005 to study at Pratt Institute and have been living here for seven years now. Since then, I’ve been moving around in Fort Greene, Bed-Stuy, and Clinton Hill.

Anything about Brooklyn that bugs you?
I wish there were more pets that dressed up. I wish pets would wear more cute outfits like boater hats or bucket hats, fringed jackets, matching top-and-bottom running suits, shoes, bells, stuff like that. Depends on the vibe of the day, you only live once... wait... what?

What’s the most insightful thing anyone’s ever said about what you do?
Someone on the street once stopped me and said they knew I was a little punk and they didn’t know me that well or anything, but they knew that whatever I was doing, it was gonna be good.


What’s next for you?
I’m gonna make some tea, go to the studio, edit some videos, shoot some photos, collage, water the plant, go for a walk, refresh my Gmail page, listen to some Fatima Al Qadiri, work on a book, make a blog post, look at some magazines, and reflect.

Maggie Lee Loves Girls

"I love girls. Girl with cute stickers, sad punk girl sitting in an alley, the girl with a chain wallet, Lisa Simpson's room kinda girl, alt lifestyle girl, girl on girl, women."
