Friedlander’s social landscape is a who’s who of postwar American photography

In the 1960s and '70s, Lee Friedlander (born 1934) developed his signature approach to documenting the American “social landscape”: deadpan, structurally complex black-and-white photographs of seemingly anything, anybody or anyplace that passed in front of his lens. 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 practice he has continued throughout his long career.

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.

When Lee Friedlander pays tribute, it means something

When Lee Friedlander pays tribute, it means something

Featured photograph, of Garry Winogrand in New York City, 1971, is reproduced from Lee Friedlander: The Mind and the Hand, the Eakins Press new release collecting six concise volumes of Friedlander's photography, each dedicated to one of the great friends of his long life—Richard Benson, William Christenberry, William Eggleston, Walker Evans, John Szarkowski and Winogrand—all of whom happen to be towering figures in American post-war photography, alongside Friedlander himself. "There is nothing as mysterious as a fact clearly described," Winogrand is quoted. "I like to think of photographing as a two way act of respect. Respect for the medium, by letting it do what it does best, describe. And respect for the subject, by describing it as it is. A photograph must be responsible to both." continue to blog
