Lee Friedlander: The Mind and the Hand
(1000 items available)
In the 1960s and '70s, Lee Friedlander developed his signature approach to documenting the American "social landscape". But as he was making his name as a documentary photographer capturing the look and feel of modern American life, he was also photographing his closest friends. A slipcased set of six paperback books, The Mind and the Hand presents the photographer's intimate portraits of six of his best friends taken over the past five decades. The subjects, each presented in their own separate volume, comprise a veritable who's who of one of America's most fertile periods in photography: Richard Benson, William Christenberry, William Eggleston, Walker Evans, John Szarkowski and Garry Winogrand. Each volume begins with a relevant quote from its subject.
