Self Portrait (Special Edition)

Self Portrait (Special Edition)


Self Portrait Special Edition (1970)

Self Portrait is Friedlander’s first monograph, self-published by Haywire Press. Inserting himself into the world around him in various ways--his face peering out from behind a trophy, the spectre of his enlarged silhouette looming over a doorway, his reflection in a dirty mirror, and perhaps most famously, the shadow of his head cast onto a woman walking in front of him on the street--Friedlander decidedly challenges and reinvents the form of the self-portrait. The result is a body of work that is alternatively mischievous, spooky, defiant, and even lighthearted, but never predictable. In the introduction, Friedlander writes: “They began as straight portraits but soon I was finding myself at times in the landscape of my photography. I might call myself an intruder.”
