Author: Lee Friedlander

Date released: May 6, 2013
Photographer Lee Friedlander first published The Nudes in 1991 in conjunction with MoMA's exhibit of his photos. A the time, Charles Hagen of the New York Times, wrote that Friedlander refused to present the classical ideal of a woman: "On the contrary, he records their body hair, bruises, dirty feet and sagging flesh in sometimes excruciating detail." These unapologetic, modern nudes draw us in with more than just lust. In this second edition of Friedlander's nude photography, the author offers more photos and commentary on his captivating images.
