“The world makes up my pictures, not me.” —Lee Friedlander 

Until December 22nd, the Pace/MacGill Gallery on E. 57th St. is hosting a double-shot of Lee Friedlander.  Two exhibits, “Lee Friedlander: Nudes” and “Lee Friedlander: Mannequin” take us into the past and back to the present.  On the second floor, we get to re-visit Friedlander’s acclaimed nudes from the late 70’s and 80’s, while on the 9th, we encounter the first New York presentation of his latest body of work, “Mannequin.” 

Both shows revel in the power of the 35mm camera. Friedlander’s nudes are evocative and immediate.  His hand-held camera work still feels loose and confident. In this new series, “Mannequin” it’s all about composition, perspective, and layers of shadow and light. While past masters like Eugene Atget and Berenice Abbott have successfully pursued a similar motif of reflections in a shop window, a modern master like Friedlander leaves his own scent behind. I found that the complexity of these images stirred my mind in many directions—the closer I looked the deeper I got.  Lee Friedlander is approaching his 80’s, yet how many younger photographers can consistently match this caliber of work?  —Lane Nevares
