Lee Friedlander

Lee Friedlander (born July 14, 1934) is an American photographer and artist. In the 1960s and 70s, working primarily with 35mm cameras and black and white film, Friedlander evolved an influential and often imitated visual language of urban “social landscape,” with many of the photographs including fragments of store-front reflections, structures framed by fences, posters and street-signs.

There’s always a somehow hidden detail in Lee Friedlander’s photographs. I love the way he instead of hiding the city’s “less pretty” objects, such as street-signs and fences, tries to include them in the photographs.
