Lee Friedlander: Portraits


Lee Friedlander: Portraits (1985)

Lee Friedlander: Portraits marks Friedlander’s first monograph where he turns his camera exclusively on human subjects, both famous--jazz pianist Count Basie, writer Walker Percy, fellow photographer Diane Arbus--and unknown. The book also contains a foreword by Friedlander’s close friend, the artist R.B. Kitaj. From the publisher: "Lee Friedlander: Portraits presents a little-known aspect of the photographer's work, but the portraits have the wry, warm, offbeat quality that is essential Friedlander. The sitters are seen in familiar, usually  simple, settings, but an instinctive photographic vision has caught them in unusual perspectives or lighting, with fleeting expressions or casual postures that are richly suggestive of context, past and future."
