America By Car

by Lee Friedlander

Publication: Fraenkel Gallery, 2010, San Francisco

First edition. Limited to 1,000 copies of which this is number 60. Signed opposite the title page by the photographer. "Driving across most of the country’s fifty states in an ordinary rental car, master photographer Lee Friedlander (b. 1934) applied the brilliantly simple conceit of deploying the sideview mirror, rearview mirror, the windshield, and the side windows as picture frames within which to record reflections of this country’s eccentricities and obsessions at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Friedlander’s method allows for fascinating effects in foreshortening, and wonderfully telling juxtapositions in which steering wheels, dashboards, and leatherette bump up against roadside bars, motels, churches, monuments, suspension bridges, essential American landscapes, and often Friedlander’s own image." As new, unread copy in dust jacket. Housed in the publisher's original shipping carton.
