In Sticks & Stones, Lee Fiedlander offers his view of America as seen through its architecture. In 192 square-format pictures shot over the past 15 years, Friedlander has framed the familiar through his own unique way of seeing the world. Whether representing modest vernacular buildings or monumental skyscrapers, Friedlander liberates then from our preconceived notions and gives us a new way of looking at our surrounding environment. Shot during the course of countless trips to urban and rural areas across the country, these pictures capture an America as umblemished by romanticised notions of human nature as it is full of quirky human touches. Without reference to their makers, streets, roads, facades and buildings offer their own visual intrigue. Rather than grand buildings, it is the forgettable architectural elements - the poles, posts, sidewalks, fences and parked cars - that through photographic juxtaposition uncover the spirit of Friedlander's 'Architectural America.'
