Lee Friedlander’s work is widely known for transforming our visual understanding of contemporary American culture. Known for passionately embracing all subject matter, Friedlander photographed nearly every facet of American life from the 1950s to the present. From factories in Pennsylvania, to the jazz scene in New Orleans, to the deserts of the Southwest, Friedlander's complex formal visual strategies continue to influence the way we understand, analyze, and experience modern American experience. Friedlander's work continues to influence photographic practice internationally, in part due to the heightened sense of self-awareness that is a trademark of so many of his photographs and in part because of his ability to embrace wide-ranging subject matter, always interpreting it in an elegance that hadn't existed prior to his work.


New in publisher's shrink-wrap (slit open for signature; from Friedlander's personal archive).


From the publisher: "His pictures show the role these precious pets play in our day-to-day lives. We see dogs as companions, objects of affection, waiting alone in their gated yards, in parks, and in cars – the usual breadth of situation that Lee Friedlander is known for. Not much misses the roving eye of Friedlander... but this title is sure to delight as it is filled with the warmth and humor of the human condition as it interacts with the favored pet, all framed and juxtaposed in the stunning style of Lee Friedlander."
