Description:(FRIEDLANDER, LEE). Friedlander, Lee. SELF PORTRAIT: LEE...(FRIEDLANDER, LEE). Friedlander, Lee. SELF PORTRAIT: LEE FRIEDLANDER. New York: Haywire Press, 1970. First Edition. Oblong Small 4to. Pictorial Wrappers. Photography Monograph. Good +. np (88pp), 42 b&w illustrations + cover. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. "Self Portrait" is Lee Friedlander's first, self-published book of photographs. It contains a series of images taken over the course of six years between 1964 and 1969 in which Friedlander inhabits each photo, though not always in the most obvious of ways. Sometimes he is the subject, while in others he appears in reflection or as a shadow. It was quite a departure from the standard photographic monograph when it first appeared in 1970. A most presentable copy of the 1970 softbound first edition (cited on pages 262-263 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book", page 258 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume II", page 143 of "From Fair to Fine 3", and pages 198-199 of "The Book of 101 Books") showing overall light wear and handling, rubbing and abrading to the rear cover and spine, and the ghost of a small, discreetly removed adhesive label on the title page. It has been priced accordingly. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its value-we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase. Inventory Number: 019563.
Description:Fine. No dust jacket as issued. First edition, first printing....Fine. No dust jacket as issued. First edition, first printing. Soft cover. Photographically illustrated stiff wrappers; no dust jacket as issued. Photographs and text by Lee Friedlander. Unpaginated (88 pp. ) with 42 black-and-white plates finely printed by the Meriden Gravure Company, Meriden, Connecticut. 8-1/2 x 9-1/8 inches. [Cited in Andrew Roth, ed., The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century. (New York: PPP Editions in association with Roth Horowitz LLC, 2001), in Andrew Roth, ed., The Open Book. (Göteborg, Sweden: Hasselblad Center in association with Steidl Verlag, Göttingen, Germany, 2004), and in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume I. (London and New York: Phaidon, 2004). ]CONDITION: Fine (a Near Mint copy with the slightest of shelf wear along the edge near the spine). Introducing this body of work, Friedlander wrote, "I might call myself an intruder." Following this, in Andrew Roth's Book of 101 Books Vince Aletti asserts, "Friedlander does seem to be lurking or barging into his own pictures--a hovering, disembodied Everyman, at once here and gone. Like the ephemeral figures in nineteenth-century spirit photos, he appears as a shadow, a reflection, a pair of shoes, a barely discernible shape. Although there are a number of shots where Friedlander's head is clearly visible in a mirror or looms unmediated into the frame, none are conventional or in any sense flattering self-portraits...Mostly, however, he seems determined to remove himself from the frame--to become not the subject of the picture but just another incidental bit of photographic phenomena, no more important that a shaft of sunlight or a shop window or a passing shadow." Friedlander's Self-Portraits call attention to the complex, fractured and sometimes dissimulating interplay between various screens, shadows, reflections, lenses and the surfaces of the photographs themselves.
