Lee Friedlander: American Monuments
I just got back from the Lee Friedlander photo exhibit at the Minnesota Art Institute. I knew nothing about Friedlander's work, but was drawn to the description of his interest in popular culture and photography as a medium. I was most pleasantly surprised by Friedlander's interest in American Monuments; his work seems potentially instructive for the Visual Culture and Language class and my work with Electronic Monuments. I should try a series of photos on Fargo's monuments.
