I was quite intrigued the first time I saw Hatnim Lee’s 99¢ series. Of course when I saw her Pomeranian, Denny, I was smitten.
Hatnim Lee created this series in 2010 when the economic crisis forced some of the magazines that she worked for to close. As a result, many of her friends lost their jobs . Hatnim went to the local dollar store and purchased costumes, props and set materials. Each set is a different color and cost $20.00. Denny was the only animal in the series. You can see more of his photos on Hatnim Lee’s blog.
Denny was Hatnim’s first dog, and suffered from a heart condition and cataracts. Sadly Denny passed away in 2011. Before euthanasia Denny enjoyed a last meal from Popeye’s. Photos of Denny have been featured at Corcoran Gallery of Art, Honfleur Gallery, and Transformer Gallery.
