Lee Friedlander: America By Car

September 4 through November 28 America By Car is on exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
"A Collection of brilliant observations about American people and places, their idiosyncrasies, eccentricities, and obsessions, and his love of all."
- The New YorkerDriving across most of the fifty states in a rental car, Lee Friedlander applied the simple conceit of deploying the side view mirror, rear view mirror, the windshield, and the side windows as picture frames within which to record reflections of this country's eccentricities and obsessions at the beginning of the twenty-first century.
