Publisher Comments:

Lee Friedlander (b. 1934) is one of the most renowned photographers of his generation.and#160;Through Friedlanderandrsquo;s lens, people in their everyday environments are transformed into arresting portraits, and the banal features of roadsides, storefronts, and city streets become vivid scenery.and#160;In Dressing Up, Friedlander ventures into new territory, turning his eye to the rarefied world of fashion and revealing precisely what is commonplace about it: behind the glamorous spectacle of the runway are many people hard at work.

The photographs, commissioned by the New York Times Magazine, were taken in 2006 during New York Fashion Week, when the artist spent time backstage at the Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Zac Posen, Oscar de la Renta, and Proenza Schouler shows. The resulting images, many of which are published here for the first time, depict a flurry of toiling stylists, dressers, makeup artists, photographers, and modelsandmdash;all of them preparing, but not quite prepared, for an image to be taken. Lovers of photography and high-end fashion will be surprised and intrigued by this inside glimpse into the world of runway design.

Synopsis:

Featuring many previously unpublished photographs by Friedlander of his wife, children, and extended family spanning more than fifty years, this unusually frank and poignant book provides a glimpse into the complex workings of family life.and#160;

Synopsis:

This photographic collection of candid black-and-white portraits by the renowned photographer Lee Friedlander goes behind the scenes to showcase the many hands at work during New York Fashion Week.

Synopsis:

Designed and conceived to complement In the Picture, his 2011 volume of self-portraits, Lee Friedlanderand#8217;s Family in the Picture is the family album of one of the most restless and inventive figures in the history of photography. The sequence of over 350 pictures begins with images of Friedlanderand#8217;s wife, Maria, at the beginning of their marriage, and interweaves major life events such as births, weddings, and funerals with moments that are less outwardly momentous yet equally moving. Although some of the pictures are well known, the majority of images have only recently been unearthed from Friedlanderand#8217;s personal archive. This compendium of pictures, spanning over a half-century, chronicles the photographerand#8217;s family with arresting frankness, poignancy, and a moral: that life goes on.
