This retrospective assembles the most comprehensive array of Lee Friedlander’s work to date — nearly 400 pictures spanning the 1950s to the present — for a stunning overview of his multifaceted career. Friedlander trained his eye on the everyday — streets, cars, storefronts, billboards — capturing distinctly American images. His style is inflected by a sharp wit and sense of humor, frequently taking advantage of elements considered by most to be obstacles, including his own shadow. Friedlander features examples from the artist’s extensive personal photo series as well as his commercial work.
