James Fee

James Fee (1949– 2006) was an American photographer known for his images of abandoned factories and lonesome highways.

 

Fee photographed images that he thought represented United States cultural icons in decline, such as crumbling drive-in movie theaters and rusting, abandoned cars.

 

Fee's approach to photography led museum curators to give his exhibitions such titles as "American Noir" and "The Weight of Time." His photographs are permanently housed in the San Diego Museum of Photographic Arts, the William Benton Museum of Art,  Getty Museum and The Philadelphia Museum of Art.
