Letters from the People: Photographs by Lee Friedlander deals with words and language—how commercial signs and graffiti structure our perception of urban environment and, to a large extent, define our relationship to it.
American photographer Lee Friedlander’s work is concerned not with the systematic and thorough documentation of various North American cities, but with something far more elusive: discovering in their monotony, vulgarity and disorder a particular urban character. In his photographs, startling, and often visually disorienting juxtapositions of automobiles, buildings, statues, and signs create a dense, urban collage.
Curated by David Harris, CCA.
