Description
(One of the New York Times' Top Ten Photography Books of 2011) Street photographer Lee Friedlander has also pursued a series of self-portraits throughout his prolific career. What began as an unorthodox investigation of the genre (Friedlander often appears in these images as a reflection or a shadow) has become a five-decade engagement between the photographer and his world. The 373 duotone images in this visual memoir take us from the start of his career (including his courtship with his wife Maria and the birth of his son Erik) into his 70s and his travels with his family and fellow artists and photographers.

"Through decades of keen observations of the American cultural landscape, Friedlander has been methodically, relentlessly and endearingly documenting himself.... [The book] celebrates the pleasures of looking back at a life well seen."—NYTimes

"Amid all the mischief, the book is also a narrative of a man ageing before our eyes, the young, lean Friedlander gradually giving way to a more jowly—and scowly—presence.... A life laid bare, then, but slyly and with a self-questioning smile."—Observer (London)

"What makes this latest (and, one hopes, not last) volume of self-portraiture exceptional is its inclusion of five decades of work and many never-before-seen images.... An excellent choice for photographers who wish to explore techniques of self-portraiture and readers interested in learning more about this great American photographer."—Library Journal
