LEE FRIEDLANDER


Fundación MAPFRE, Madrid, Spain

1 Oct 2020 - 10 Jan 2021

From 1 October 2020 through 10 January 2021 the Fundación MAPFRE in Madrid presents a complete chronological journey through the work of Lee Friedlander.


Lee Friedlander (b. 1934 in Aberdeen, Washington) is considered to be a critical chronicler of the American way of life. Being one of the most important representatives of Street Photography, he captures people in urban situations and thus reflects on modern, alienated life. Apart from city and street scenes, Friedlander also covers the genres of the nude, self portrait, landscape or still life. The driving force behind his oeuvre is above all the motivation to engage with their immediate lebensraum. Lee Friedlander is one of today's most prominent American photographers.
