Lee Friedlander: Letters From The People
by Lee Friedlander
Publisher's Description
Letters from the People affirms Lee Friedlander's position as the preeminent photographer in the tradition of Walker Evans, whose classic book Message from the Interior served as Friedlander's model for the scale of this latest work. In a beautifully edited sequence of images, Friedlander captures language as our shared cultural reality, focusing on the everyday presence of the written word in the random letters, words, signs, slogans, and outcries that dot our social landscape. It celebrates the social energy, ethnic diversity, and cultural rhythms fueled by the democratic experience of freedom of expression. This major monograph, beautifully printed in tritone, accompanies a traveling exhibition that opens at the Walker Art Center in December this year and at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in June of 1994.
