Lee Friedlander – photography and a geography lesson all in one

Per Garth’s suggestion I looked up Lee Friedlander after class today. I wasn’t impressed by all of his photographs, but a few stuck out as I was flipping through. He does some interesting things with layering a foreground and background that could be separated into individual pictures such as an image on a TV screen or ¬†reflected in a mirror. He also names all of his work (presumably) after where each photo was taken. Who knew there was a town called Aloha, WA? Not me anyway.
