The Little Screens, which contains photographs of television screens in motels and other undistinguished rooms across America, and a preface by renowned photographer Walker Evans, is one of Friedlander’s most influential books. The cover features a crystallographic dual-image tipped in to the television-screen portion of the cover photograph, so that the face in the screen changes depending on the angle from which one views it. From the publisher: "Each screen vividly transmits images of popular culture icons, political figures, or minor celebrities of the times. The environments are iconographic ghost-filled rooms filled with bland furniture--rooms without personality, rooms that could be, and are, anywhere and everywhere."
