Cherry Blossom Time in Japan (2006)

Cherry Blossom Time in Japan is the culmination of four trips Friedlander took to Japan to photograph its world-famous cherry blossom trees in full bloom. The photographs are printed with a special drytrap process on heavy matte paper. From the publisher: “The groundbreaking black and white images--first seen as 25 photogravures in a 1986 portfolio, and long out of print--appear as examples of radical picture-making even 20 years later, as few serious photographers would have dared to photograph cherry blossoms with anything other than color film at that time. The result is a new kind of beauty, with many of the compositions bordering on visual chaos. The images collected here serve as a precursor for much of Friedlander's late landscape work, which was exhibited to great acclaim in his 2005 Museum of Modern Art retrospective.”
