First edition, signed in hand to half title page by Lee Friedlander

Lee Friedlander’s first separate monograph was SELF PORTRAIT (1970) and 30 years later he revisits himself with this collection. In SELF PORTRAIT we mostly saw his shadow, but in this later body of work, it is his body that is the subject. His expression is generally blank, but in a few instances, as in the photographs with his wife and granddaughter (for whom this book is dedicated) a wisp of a smile is revealed. There are a few hints of purpose or direction given in the quotations so prominently presented; “I wake up every morning and have to laugh ’cause I look at the wall; and see my photograph” (Laughing Louis, sung by Louis Armstrong); “To know one’s own state is not a simple matter. One cannot look directly at one’s own face with one’s own eyes.” (Murakami)
