Lee Friedlander’s Love Story

MARIA, an exhibition of photographs by the highly influential Lee Friedlander featuring his wife, Maria, is currently on view at Deborah Bell Photographs in New York. Dating from 1958 to 2008, the pictures were taken during Maria and Lee’s early marriage, and throughout their family life as parents and grandparents. The 32 prints in the exhibition were specifically selected by Friedlander for the Deborah Bell gallery space, “thus offering a special opportunity for his audience to see these pictures in a new and intimate context,” writes the gallery in the press release. Although most of the photographs on view are well known from their inclusion in Friedlander’s books and exhibition catalogues, and have appeared on the walls of many museum and gallery exhibitions internationally, this is the first exhibition devoted to Friedlander’s pictures of Maria, and contributes to the ongoing narrative of this fifty-year love story.
