From 1973 to 1974, Lee Friedlander and Burt Wolf edited four iconic portfolios at the Double Elephant Press in New York, featuring photographs by some of the most influential photographers of the twentieth century: Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Walker Evans, Garry Winogrand, and Lee Friedlander himself. Each of the four limited edition portfolios contain fifteen photographs by each artist, representing their distinct visions that can be described in the words of Walker Evans as “oddly refreshing, unselfconsciously striking, and unpredictably adventurous.”
This special presentation of the original portfolios honors the unique collaborative project that was to become a touchstone in the history of photography.
