Factory Valleys

Factory Valleys


Factory Valleys (1982) 

Friedlander’s first exploration of the theme of the American worker, Factory Valleys conveys the spirit and grit of one of the country’s most important industrial centers. From the publisher: "In 1979, Friedlander was commissioned by the Akron Art Museum to document the industrial area of the Ohio River Valley. Over the course of the following year, he traveled in Ohio and Pennsylvania, photographing the towns, cities, factories, and workers. The result is not only a stunning reportage of the industrial heartland of America, but also an insightful portrait of the contemporary American social landscape, seen with Friedlander's unique blend of formal brilliance, elliptical wit, and acute perception.”
