Lee Friedlander [Contemporary Photographer]

Lee Friedlander, born in Washington state in 1934, had, like most good photographers, an obsession for the camera. Friedlander avoids fancy post processing and photography tricks. He likes to let the picture speak for itself. How is he able to photograph everyday things, avoid fancy edditing, and still create an interesting photograph?

Fridlander works in black and white photographing things such as street and city scapes, landscapes, portraits and self-portraits. Walker Evans has a significant influence on his work, as you can tell. He experiences a lot with reflections and opacity.
