In a career that spans over three decades, Mark Lee Ping-Bing (Taiwanese, b. 1954) has distinguished himself as one of the world's foremost cinematographers and moving image creators. Lee is a master of filming in natural and low-light conditions, revealing dense, lustrous layers of light and darkness that provide incredible depth and space. An essential partner to the director he works with, Lee is best known for his longtime collaboration with director Hou Hsia-Hsien. In the ten award-winning features they've made together, the duo has defined a vision for Taiwan New Cinema realism and beyond. For this first American retrospective of Lee's work MoMA presents a diverse showing of films from Taiwan, Honk Kong, China, Vietnam, Japan, and France.
