Editorial Reviews

Review

Friedlander has always been attracted to the tricks of light and the provocative doublings that arise from reflective surfaces-rearview mirors, glass walls, car windshields, and television sets recur throughout his career. Here he remains alert to the recombined ghosts that proliferate in the space between what's real and what's mere reflection, thus playing Pygmalion to these prefab Galateas by permitting them entry into that airy, vigorously mutational realm.

I really hate to think of this group as a last gasp. It looks intentional. It looks vibrant. It also looks somewhat derivative of past constructions. If this work has been done all within his seventh decade, it speaks to a dedication consistent from within a lifetime. Reverting to the small format might be somewhat telling, though I get the requisite given the architectural context. The eye is still strong, though I still wish for something more in line with a crucified side of meat in an Asian storefront. A graceful encore.

It is no surprise that Lee Friedlander has released a book of Mannequins--he has for years been playing with the spaces created by store windows on city streets--especially in his "Self Portraits" series. The mannequins he shows are all behind glass, untouchable, idealized plastic forms intended to incite desire for at least the clothes they fill. This book seems to be the flip side of his "Nudes" series in which the only subject was the reality of the female form, without clothes or any other barriers to break the directness of his gaze, the flesh revealed in the glow of his strobe, but the faces closed, self-protected--you can look, but you'd better not touch...

Friedlander has been around for a while--the recent "The New Cars 1964" is of photographs from nearly 50 years ago--so one of the surprising things about Mannequins is the lack of older photographs--the list in the back shows only one photograph made before 2009--the rest have all been made in the past few years. Which leads to the question, why, when so much of the world is in economic crisis would Friedlander focus on things that, for most of us, have moved even further out of reach? Of course, he provides no answer--but he, like us, likes to look.

A stunning collection of Mannequin photos. Lee Friedlander at the peak of his abilities.

In interviews Lee has spoken of the influence of Jazz saxophonist Charlie Parker on his seeing and in Manneguin we see Lee Friedlander creating a visual jazz riff on his 35mm Leica. A book that is not to be missed.

Some people will photograph anything; and I know the feeling. And we share the same last name too? How odd?
