An excellent choice for photographers who wish to explore techniques of self-portraiture and readers interested in learning more about this great American photographer."-Michael Dashkin, Library Journal -- Michael Dashkin Library Journal
Reseña del editor
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 In this extraordinary compilation, which includes hundreds of previously unpublished pictures, we follow the famous photographer through the years as his personal and creative lives unfold and intertwine.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.Ver Descripción del producto

This volume contains 376 images, all of them containing the image of Friedlander, his shadow, or his reflection. Considering how hard most photographers work to remove their own image from the picture (journalism tries to push the illusion that the photographer is an impartial observer), the presence of a shadow or a reflection is jarring. But even more unsettling is the way Friedlander presents himself--as himself--mostly boring, fat, and old (and sometimes a bit pig-headed)--the anti-hero of a non-movie.
The flow of the book--from a young rake projecting his image onto women's bodies (often his lovely wife's, but sometime a cardboard cut-out), to a father and a grandfather enjoying the company of his family, to his failing body after heart surgery--but always surrounded by friends, always looking for the joke--makes us grateful that Friedlander has shared so much of his image with us.
Anything worth doing is worth overdoing--and this book is worth having. Buy it while you can. Friedlander will not always be with us. But we can hope that he has a forth self portrait book yet to come--when he turns 90, three times bigger than this one...
