I'm still thinking about this one.

I'll put the landscapes of Friedlander's "Cherry Blossom Time in Japan" and "Flowers and Trees" up against any landscape pictures ever, for their sweep, their grace, their wholeness.

These pictures are not the same; there is less clarity here, less direction, more crowding, as trees and leaves and branches fill the frame.

Maybe it's switching to a square format camera; maybe it's the subject matter. Whatever, there isn't much peaceful here.

What there is, is the suggestion of a world of infinitely many details, one that you can only get a glimpse of.

This is a more private, more wintery Friedlander. The pictures are richly rewarding, but best viewed after you've seen his earlier works.

Each of these photographs is expertly composed. Friedlander has a knack for taking matter that is apparently chaotic (such as trees and branches) and framing his shots in a way that imposes perfect balance and order. This book is probably the best example of that, and is--to me--his best work. I can't recommend it highly enough. The reproduction quality is excellent (there is one shot that is imperfectly printed, however, and exhibits "ghosting"). The matte prints look like high-quality RC prints suitable for framing.
