Label Text:
Excerpt from wall label, for the exhibition “The Unexpected Encounters of Looking Again,” November 28 - March 15, 2007:
This black and white photograph is characteristic of Friedlander’s interest in capturing glimpses of people and the city streets. It presents a view of man and a woman reflected through the pane of a glass door. Friedlander’s work calls into question the act of looking by obscuring the viewer’s vantage point. His photographs contend with the diversity of American society in that they present familiar scenes from everyday life. Friedlander has a way of pointing out what is always already known but never really considered. - Rebecca Karp (M.A. '08)
