Lee Friedlander
Lee Friedlander was born in 1934 in Aberdeen, Washington. In 1948 he began to photograph seriously and by the 1960s had become widely recognized for his all-encompassing portrayals of the American social landscape—a term he coined. Friedlander’s influential work has been the subject of many seminal exhibitions, including “New Documents” and “Mirrors and Windows,” both organized by John Szarkowski at the Museum of Modern Art, and more than 50 books, including Self Portrait (1970), The American Monument (1976), Factory Valleys (1982), Sticks and Stones (2004) and America By Car (2010).
