So, Lee Friedlander is one of the few artists in any medium to have sustained a body of influential work over five decades. In order to make the photographs in Mannequin, he returned to using 35mm camera. Which he previously used in the earliest decades of his career. Over the past three years, Friedlander has roamed the sidewalks of America focusing on storefront windows and reflections. Which conjure marketplace notions of sex, fashion and consumerism. As well as recalling Atget's surreal photographs of Parisian windows made 100 years earlier. Thoroughly straightforward, their unsettling and radical new compositions suggest photographs that have been torn up and pasted back together again in near-random ways.
Friedlander began photographing in 1948. More than forty books about his work have been published since the early 1970s. His career was the focus of a major traveling retrospective organized by the Museum of Modern Art, NY, in 2005. His work can be found in depth in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the San Francisco Museum of Art, and the National Gallery of Art, among many others. - From the publisher
