In Children, more than 300 photographs are presented in two sections. The first features images of children that the artist has known: being bathed or fed, laughing or crying with family members, posing with pets or mugging for the camera. The second section presents works from Friedlander’s years of photographing people on the street: children in parades, sitting in cars, reflected in storefront windows. Taken together, these images offer a picture of America’s youth through the eyes of one of the most renowned photographers of his generation.

Lee Friedlander is a photographer based in New York State.

“As ever with this seminal photographer, the pictures show Friedlander’s focus on everyday American life through his relentless visual imagination…. Friedlander’s eye is witty, insightful and compassionate...”—Anna Bonita Evans, Black & White Photography
