friedlanderfriedlander1982_54Friedlander’s work focuses on the detached images of urban life, store-front reflections, structures framed by fences, and posters and signs all combining to capture the look of modern life. Friedlander’s images of shop windows evoke a certain ambiguity, an oscillation between reflected and actual reality, that invite inspection of the space and the meaning of the image. Similar responses are encouraged by Friedlander’s street photographs, in which shadows of figures (usually Friedlander himself) and other subjects overlap in the photographic image. The projected outline of Friedlander’s body as within the picture frame implies the notion that the photographer can be both behind the camera and in front of it.
