Lee Friedlander had one of the most inventive and prolific careers of the 1960s generation of photographers. His lively, irreverent glimpses of city streets and his tongue-in-cheek self-portraits upended the earnest humanism of postwar photography. Published to accompany MoMA's 2005 exhibition, this survey takes a critical look at Friedlander's productive career. Images of the 'American social landscape' are included alongside portraits, self-portraits, landscapes, still lifes, nudes, studies of people at work, and - exhibited for the first time - a current series of landscapes made in the American West. Including over 800 photographs grouped by series, and an incisive essay by Peter Galassi, Chief Curator of Photography at The Museum of Modern Art, this publication is the most comprehensive review of the photographer's career to date.
