Arrested is the biography of idiosyncratic London-based photographer and film director Jim Lee. Born in 1945 to parents who were both MI5 operatives, Lee's life has followed anything but a conventional route. Dyslexia and an independent spirit saw Lee at the age of just seventeen emigrate to Australia, where his passion for photography was kindled. Rescued from fighting in the Vietnam war by his parents' intervention (on the grounds of national security), Lee returned to the UK and began to establish a portfolio photographing bands such as The Kinks and The Who. As his reputation grew, Lee became in demand as a fashion photographer for magazines during the late sixties and seventies, notably working with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour in London and New York on fashion and advertising shoots. He collaborated with some of the most influential fashion designers, including Ossie Clark, Yves St Laurent and Gianni Versace, and his work appeared in Elle, The Sunday Times Magazine, Harpers & Queen and The New York Times.
