9780870703386: Lee Friedlander: Self Portrait

Lee Friedlander's surreal sensibility is on full display in this set of photographs, originally published in 1970. Here Friedlander focuses on the role of his own physical presence in his images. He writes: “At first, my presence in my photos was fascinating and disturbing. But as time passed and I was more a part of other ideas in my photos, I was able to add a giggle to those feelings.” Here readers can witness this progression as Friedlander appears in the form of his shadow, or reflected in windows and mirrors, and only occasionally fully visible through his own camera. In some photos he visibly struggles with the notion of self-portraiture, desultorily shooting himself in household mirrors and other reflective surfaces. Soon, though, he begins to toy with the pictures, almost teasingly inserting his shadow into them to amusing and provocative effect--elongated and trailing a group of women seen only from the knees down; cast and bent over a chair as if seated in it; mirroring the silhouette of someone walking down the street ahead of him; or falling on the desert ground, a large bush standing in for hair. These uncanny self-portraits evoke a surprisingly full landscape of the artist's life and mind. This reprint edition of Lee Friedlander: Self Portrait contains nearly 50 duotone images and an afterword by John Szarkowski, former Director of the Department of Photography at The Museum of Modern Art.

Review:

Lee Friedlander's surreal sensibility is on full display in this set of photographs, originally published in 1970. Here Friedlander focuses on how his physical presence impacts his photographs. Known for capturing subjects outside of himself--nudes, landscapes--Friedlander writes: "At first, my presence in my photos was fascinating and disturbing. But as time passed and I was more a part of other ideas in my photos, I was able to add a giggle to those feelings." Readers can witness this progression through the images here as Friedlander appears in shadow, reflected in windows and mirrors, and, only occasionally, fully visible through his own camera. In some photos he visibly struggles with the notion of self-portraiture, desultorily shooting himself in household mirrors and other reflective surfaces. Soon, though, he begins to toy with the pictures, almost teasingly inserting his shadow into them to amusing and provocative effect--elongated and trailing a group of women seen only from the knees down; cast and bent over a chair as if seated in it; mirroring the silhouette of someone walking down the street ahead of him; or falling on the desert ground, a large bush standing in for hair. These uncanny self-portraits evoke a surprisingly full landscape of the artist's life and mind. There are nearly 50 duotone images in this reprint edition of Lee Friedlander: Self Portrait, which includes a new essay about the work by writer John Szarkowski.

Review:

Friedlander has created a dialogue between his own image and a wonderful array of his other subjects. -- Artforum, December 2000 –Walter Hopps

Price is net to all; promotional discounts do not apply.1970/2005. Third edition (revised edition, originally published in 1970 by Haywire Press), first printing. Signed in black ink on the title page by Friedlander. Hardcover. Full black cloth-covered boards, with title debased on cover and stamped in silver on spine, with photographically illustrated dust jacket. Photographs and text (original preface written in February 1970 and revised preface written July 1997 for the second edition) by Friedlander. Afterword by John Szarkowski. Original design by Friedlander and Marvin Israel, adapted for this edition by Amanda Washburn. Unpaginated (104 pp.) with 46 plates (including four plates added for the second edition), and 3 additional plates, including a portrait of John Szarkowski and Richard Benson made in 1997 by Friedlander, printed on 150 gsm Parilux Silk paper, and bound, by Meridian Printing, East Greenwich, Rhode Island, from duotone separations made by Richard Benson. 9-5/8 x 10-1/2 inches.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 New dust jacket. From MOMA: "Originally published in 1970, this remarkable book was redesigned and reprinted in 1998 in a larger format and with a new afterword by John Szarkowski. Now, on the occasion of Friedlander's retrospective at MoMA, the Museum is reissuing the book in its original design, but in the larger format and including the afterword. In Self Portrait, Friedlander focuses on his own physical presence, even if it is sometimes signaled only by his shadow. The result is a rich and surprising landscape of the artist's life and mind."
