For 15 years, Hatnim Lee has been photographing customers at her parents' liquor store in Washington. She calls her portrait series "Plexiglass."
Lee has helped at her parents' store ever since she was a teenager. "I had all these customers that I knew intimately and saw all the time, so they became my subjects," she said.
The man here, Kim, was one of Lee's favorite customers. "He was someone that I really connected to because of his personality," Lee said. "I took his picture many times for maybe over five or six years or something. I think that image is closer to me in a lot of ways because he passed away. ... When I see his picture, it has a very special meaning to me."
"It's just kind of interesting," Lee said. "Other people don't really get to see it, experience it -- to be on the other side of the glass."
Lee says what she enjoys most about her customers' portraits is how she is able to see the evolution of people.
Lee's mother and father have owned a liquor store in Washington for most of their lives. They're retiring at the end of the month.
"When I started photography, I was actually just drawn to taking pictures of people," Lee said.
"It's such a personal body of work to me," Lee said. "These (customers) have big hearts. They're open people. They're expressive. And that's very difficult to find."
