A seminal figure in the history of photography, Lee Friedlander (b. 1934, Aberdeen, Washington) has been taking pictures of the American social landscape since 1948. His prolific career spans more than five decades and is characterized by a unique ability to create dynamic formal compositions and poignant visual juxtapositions from seemingly traditional subjects. Exploring the medium’s most central motifs – street scenes, landscapes, interiors, nudes, portraits, self-portraits, and still lifes – Friedlander’s photographs depict American vernacular culture with lighthearted irony and aesthetic amusement. Friedlander joined the Gallery in 2012.
