Lee Friedlander is an acclaimed American photographer whose photographs reflect vast variety of the ways of the USA urban life in the second half of the XX century.
I got acquainted with his creations on the exhibition in a center for contemporary culture last year. There was his photo series "At Work: MIT Computer Workers Boston Massachusetts 1985-86" (photo album "Lee Friedlander. At Work").
His characters are peering at monitors and with emotionless faces.
This emotionless impressed me — people really are sitting near computers with emotionless faces.
Today I decided to get to know about him and his artworks more. He has many interesting exhibitions, also, he wrote books, I didn't read them, but I guess, it may be something like a manifesto.
"MARIA" is an exhibition featuring his wife, Maria. It's about his fifty-year love story. Dating from 1958 to 2008, he took her photos during their early marriage and family life as parents and grandparents.
Maria and Lee have two children. One of them is a musician, Erik Friedlander. I decided to get to know his music and I love his song "The Devil Made Liquid". Also, he is a part of a music group "Zoar". Their daughter Anna is married to Thomas Roma.
That's all. I will continue the research. What do you think about their creations?
