About the artist : Lee Friedlander

Born in 1934 in Aberdeen, Washington, Lee Friedlander became interested in photography as a teenager. He studied photography at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, from 1953 to 1955 and moved to New York City in 1956. There, he worked as a freelance photographer, photographing jazz musicians for their album covers and developing a style that was influenced by Eugne Atget, Walker Evans and Robert Frank. He was friendly with his contemporaries, the likes of which included Diane Arbus, Garry Winogrand, Louis Faurer, Helen Levitt, Richard Avedon. A Guggenheim Fellow in 1960, 1962, and 1977, Friedlander had his work appear in Esquire, Art in America, and Sports Illustrated. With his distinctive images of urban life, Friedlander documented the overlooked and eccentric subjects of AmericaÕs Òsocial landscape.Ó
