Item description for Lee Friedlander: Apples & Olives by Lee Friedlander...

The master photographer best known for his extensive, insightful documentation of "the American social landscape"--from jazz musicians to factory hands to New York pedestrians and office workers zoning out at their keyboards--has recently been spending more time looking at the literal, natural landscape. His monumental 2005 MoMA retrospective showed, for the first time, a new series of landscapes made in the American West, while for Olives and Apples, he has looked back over the last decade's work and culled a forest, tree by tree. His docile subjects, apple trees photographed in New York State and olive trees photographed in France, Italy and Spain from 1997-2004, are presented in circumstances ranging from sunny, leafy summer health to glittering winter ice-storm glory. Some of the most striking compositions are shot from just inside the reach of a tree's furthest twigs, so that expanding branching limbs fill the frame, stretching out around the viewer.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lee Friedlander: Apples & Olives?

Little square gems  Feb 22, 2008
Each of these photographs is expertly composed. Friedlander has a knack for taking matter that is apparently chaotic (such as trees and branches) and framing his shots in a way that imposes perfect balance and order. This book is probably the best example of that, and is--to me--his best work. I can't recommend it highly enough. The reproduction quality is excellent (there is one shot that is imperfectly printed, however, and exhibits "ghosting"). The matte prints look like high-quality RC prints suitable for framing.
Late work from a master  Jan 10, 2007
I'm still thinking about this one.

I'll put the landscapes of Friedlander's "Cherry Blossom Time in Japan" and "Flowers and Trees" up against any landscape pictures ever, for their sweep, their grace, their wholeness.

These pictures are not the same; there is less clarity here, less direction, more crowding, as trees and leaves and branches fill the frame.

Maybe it's switching to a square format camera; maybe it's the subject matter. Whatever, there isn't much peaceful here.

What there is, is the suggestion of a world of infinitely many details, one that you can only get a glimpse of.

This is a more private, more wintery Friedlander. The pictures are richly rewarding, but best viewed after you've seen his earlier works.
