About this Item: Yale University Art Gallery and Yale University Press, New Haven, Connecticut, 2011. Hardcover. Dust Jacket Condition: No dust jacket as issued. 1st Edition. Please inquire. Pricing and availability are subject to change (price is net to all; promotional discounts do not apply).First edition, first printing. Signed in black ink on the title page by Friedlander. Hardcover. Photographically illustrated matte "rubber-like" paper-covered boards, no dust jacket as issued. Photographs by Friedlander. Afterword by Richard Benson. Brief excerpt from a letter to Lee Friedlander from John Childs, October 15, 2010. Designed by Katy Homans. 380 pp., with over 400 plates printed by Meridian Printing under the supervision of Daniel Frank, from duotone separations by Thomas Palmer. 8-3/4 x 9-3/4 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. As New (from Friedlander's personal archive). From the publisher: "Lee Friedlander (b. 1934) has been tackling the challenge of self-portraiture throughout his prolific career. What began as an unorthodox investigation of the genre has become a masterful engagement spanning five decades. In this extraordinary compilation, which includes hundreds of previously unpublished pictures, we follow the famous photographer through the years as his personal and creative lives unfold and intertwine. Produced to the highest production standards and featuring over 400 duotone images--from his first self-portraits, taken with cable release in hand, to recent images of the photographer with his family and extended network of friends--In the Picture explores Friedlander's various guises throughout a rich and colorful life." Signed by Author. As New (from Friedlander's personal archive). Seller Inventory # 112057

About this Item: Haywire Press, New City, New York, 1970. Soft cover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. First edition, first printing. Signed by Friedlander. Soft cover. Photographically illustrated stiff wrappers; no dust jacket as issued. Photographs and text (untitled preface) by Lee Friedlander. Designed by Friedlander and Marvin Israel. Unpaginated (88 pp.) with 42 plates plus the cover image (not reproduced inside the book), printed by the Meriden Gravure Company, Meriden, Connecticut, from duotone separations made by Richard Benson. 8-1/2 x 9-1/8 inches. Out of print. Scarce.[Cited in Andrew Roth, ed., The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century. (New York: PPP Editions in association with Roth Horowitz LLC, 2001), in Andrew Roth, ed., The Open Book. (Göteborg, Sweden: Hasselblad Center in association with Steidl Verlag, Göttingen, Germany, 2004), and in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume I.

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. Near Fine (wear to the extremites, else Fine). Friedlander's Self-Portraits call attention to the complex, fractured and sometimes dissimulating interplay between various screens, shadows, reflections, lenses and the surfaces of the photographs themselves. Introducing this body of work, Friedlander wrote, "I might call myself an intruder." Following this, in Andrew Roth's Book of 101 Books Vince Aletti asserts, "Friedlander does seem to be lurking or barging into his own pictures -- a hovering, disembodied Everyman, at once here and gone. Like the ephemeral figures in nineteenth-century spirit photos, he appears as a shadow, a reflection, a pair of shoes, a barely discernible shape. Although there are a number of shots where Friedlander's head is clearly visible in a mirror or looms unmediated into the frame, none are conventional or in any sense flattering self-portraits.Mostly, however, he seems determined to remove himself from the frame -- to become not the subject of the picture but just another incidental bit of photographic phenomena, no more important that a shaft of sunlight or a shop window or a passing shadow."

About this Item: Haywire Press, 1971. Paperback. Condition: Near Fine. First Edition, First Printing. SIGNED COPY Self-Portrait. Photographs by Lee Friedlander. Haywire Press, New York, 1970. Unpaged. Small quarto. First edition. Stiff illustrated wrappers. Black-and-white reproductions printed by Meriden Gravure. SIGNED by Lee Friedlander on the title page. BOOK CONDITION: Near Fine; a tight, clean copy with very light shelf wear to cover edges and corners (protected in a clear mylar cover). SIGNED. Friedlander's playful first solo book; Friedlander tells his own version of the 'social landscape' modified through personal experience, never more so than here where his own reflection or shadow impinges on every scene. 'Self Portrait is a complex, subtle work that functions as an oblique document of contemporary experience' (Parr & Badger), as well as a 'shrewd send-up of fame and anonymity' (Roth).Parr & Badger, I, 258; The Book of 101 Books, pp. 198-9.
