Lee Friedlander: Signs

Focusing on one of the artist’s key motifs for more than five decades, this publication features Friedlander’s photographs of the signs that inscribe the American landscape, from hand-lettered ads to storefront windows to massive billboards. The book collects 144 photographs made in New York and other places across the U.S., and features self-portraits, street photographs, and work from series including The American Monument and America by Car, among others. Illegible or plainspoken, crude or whimsical, Friedlander’s signs are an unselfconscious portrait of modern life.  

Due to the success of the Book Launch on July 13, we are unable to offer signed copies for sale.
