A sort of unconventional portrait book, Mannequin creates a new way of seeing its subjects: from the street. From the publisher: "Lee Friedlander is one of the few artists in any medium to have sustained a body of influential work over five decades. To make the photographs in Mannequin, [Friedlander] returned to the hand-held, 35-mm camera that he used in the earliest decades of his career. Over the past three years, Friedlander has roamed the sidewalks of New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco, focusing on storefront windows and reflections that conjure marketplace notions of sex, fashion and consumerism, while recalling Atget's surreal photographs of Parisian windows made 100 years earlier."
