The desert seen by Lee Friedlander( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Landscape photography may soothe or disturb; beckon one to forbidden corners of the world or remind us of those spaces only memory recalls. Award-winning photographer Lee Friedlander knows how to evoke such complex responses even when, as in The Desert Seen, the landscape is as strange and impenetrable as that of the Sonora Desert. Here cacti as expansive and preposterous as oceanic fauna are photographed with the reverence befitting nature's craftsmanship. Accompanied by a gentle but probing essay written by Friedlander especially for this book, the 94 magnificent tritone reproductions are an event for desert enthusiasts and photography connoisseurs alike

Playing for the benefit of the band : New Orleans music culture by Lee Friedlander( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lee Friedlander first visited the birthplace of jazz in 1957 and immediately set about photographing the aging pioneers of the art form. His love of the music and the people of New Orleans drew him back to the city, and the relationships he formed over time gave him intimate access to a scene that forged one of America's most original artistic traditions. A revised and expanded edition of his 1992 monograph 'The Jazz People of New Orleans', 'Playing for the Benefit of the Band' features over 200 photographs taken by Friedlander between 1957 and 1982, many of which are published here for the first time. Storied figures such as Duke Ellington and Mahalia Jackson have been captured by Friedlander's disarming lens, and Sweet Emma Barrett, Sister Gertrude Morgan, Johnny St. Cyr, and other luminaries are seen in their homes and the back rooms in which they gathered to play. Also included are photographs of the city's second-line parades, whose jubilant dancing has long been a defining aspect of New Orleans jazz culture

Lee Friedlander : the little screens by Saul Anton( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lee Friedlander's 'The Little Screens' first appeared as a 1963 photo-essay in Harper's Bazaar, with commentary by Walker Evans. Six untitled photographs show television screens broadcasting eerily glowing images of faces and figures into unoccupied rooms in homes and motels across America. As distinctive a portrait of an era as Robert Frank's 'The Americans', 'The Little Screens' grew in number and was not brought together in its entirety until a 2001 exhibition at the Fraenkel Gallery in San Francisco. Friedlander (b. 1934) is known for his use of surfaces and reflections--from storefront windows to landscapes viewed through car windshields -- to present a pointed view of American life. The photographs that make up The Little Screens represent an early example of this photographic strategy, offering the narrative of a peripatetic photographer moving through the landscape of 1960s America that was in thrall to a new medium. In this astute study, Saul Anton argues that The Little Screens marked the historical intersection of modern art and photography at the moment when television came into its own as the dominant medium of mass culture
Friedlander by Lee Friedlander( Book )

"The hipster wit and graphic verve of Lee Friedlander's irreverent glimpses of the city street and tongue-in-cheek self-portraits of the 1960s delivered a bracing jolt to American photography. Since the early 1970s his mastery of craft, playful affection for tradition, and voracious curiosity have transformed that early style into a fluid stream of observation, ever more capacious, nimble, and sensuous. Working in extended series that he often makes into books - some two dozen so far - Friedlander has become one of the most prolific artists in photography's history. The considerable range of his work over the past five decades - including portraits, nudes, still lifes, and studies of people at work - is anchored in a uniquely vivid and far-reaching vision of the American scene." "Friedlander, published to accompany a major retrospective exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, generously surveys the entire range of the photographer's work to date in 764 plates presented as a unfolding series of family groups. Some groups are devoted to major projects - including Self Portrait (1970), The American Monument (1976), Portraits (1985), Nudes (1991), and Sticks & Stones: Architectural America (2004) - while others, rigorously organized by date, theme, and style, further enable readers to chart the evolution of an extraordinary rich career. The book's large pages accommodate telling juxtapositions as well as ample reproductions of Friedlander's square-format photographs of the past decade, when a change of cameras made all of his old problems new again and opened fresh paths of discovery. The plates conclude with a suite of landscapes made in the American West, published for the first time. At once magisterial and bizarre, these pictures attest to the undiminished vitality of Friedlander's eye." "In the book's main essay, Peter Galassi, the Museum's Chief Curator of Photography, offers the first in-depth account of Friedlander's career. Richard Benson, Dean of the Yale University School of Art, contributes a second essay telling the story of his own role in making Friedlander's books. The first detailed catalogue of Friedlander's books, special editions, and portfolios, along with a chronology and bibliography, conclude the volume."--Jacket
