E.J. Bellocq : Storyville portraits : photographs from the New Orleans red-light district, circa 1912 by E. J Bellocq( Book )
13 editions published between 1970 and 1978 in English and held by 694 libraries worldwide
"E. J. Bellocq's photographs of Storyville prostitutes became famous in 1970, when they were shown at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Bellocq was more or less unknown before that, but with the show and the accompanying book, his mysterious, hauntingly beautiful portraits reached a wide audience, and Bellocq became a celebrated figure in the history of photography." "The Storyville portraits, which were made around 1912, constitute the only work of Bellocq's that is known to have survived. Eighty-nine glass plates were found some years after his death, and were eventually bought by the American photographer Lee Friedlander, who printed them for the show and book sponsored by the Museum of Modern Art. The book has long been out of print, and for this new edition Friedlander has expanded the number of images from thirty-four to fifty-two, and they have been reproduced in a larger format, the size of the glass plates themselves. The text from the original edition by John Szarkowski, the former director of photography at the Museum of Modern Art, is reprinted here. It is based on interviews Friedlander conducted with people who knew Bellocq - a fellow photographer, several musicians, a writer, and a former prostitute who was one of Bellocq's subjects."--BOOK JACKET

The desert seen by Lee Friedlander( Book )
8 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 289 libraries worldwide
Landscape photography may soothe or disturb; beckon one to forbidden corners of the world or remind us of those spaces only memory recalls. Award-winning photographer Lee Friedlander knows how to evoke such complex responses even when, as in The Desert Seen, the landscape is as strange and impenetrable as that of the Sonora Desert. Here cacti as expansive and preposterous as oceanic fauna are photographed with the reverence befitting nature's craftsmanship. Accompanied by a gentle but probing essay written by Friedlander especially for this book, the 94 magnificent tritone reproductions are an event for desert enthusiasts and photography connoisseurs alike

The model wife by Arthur Ollman( Book )
2 editions published in 1999 in Undetermined and English and held by 274 libraries worldwide
"With provocative photographs by some of the best-known photographers of the past century, The Model Wife is a striking and original book about the place where marriage and photography converge. Friends, lovers, confidantes, collaborators -- the multifaceted relationship between husband and wife takes on another dimension when the couple are also artist and muse. In The Model Wife, Arthur Ollman explores the imagery and photographic history of nine twentieth-century photographers who portrayed their wives over a period of years. He delves into issues of marriage itself and the powerful influences that such a partnership can have on artistic production. Comparisons between the couples and the resulting photographs enrich this discussion." --

Playing for the benefit of the band : New Orleans music culture by Lee Friedlander( Book )
9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 228 libraries worldwide
Lee Friedlander first visited the birthplace of jazz in 1957 and immediately set about photographing the aging pioneers of the art form. His love of the music and the people of New Orleans drew him back to the city, and the relationships he formed over time gave him intimate access to a scene that forged one of America's most original artistic traditions. A revised and expanded edition of his 1992 monograph 'The Jazz People of New Orleans', 'Playing for the Benefit of the Band' features over 200 photographs taken by Friedlander between 1957 and 1982, many of which are published here for the first time. Storied figures such as Duke Ellington and Mahalia Jackson have been captured by Friedlander's disarming lens, and Sweet Emma Barrett, Sister Gertrude Morgan, Johnny St. Cyr, and other luminaries are seen in their homes and the back rooms in which they gathered to play. Also included are photographs of the city's second-line parades, whose jubilant dancing has long been a defining aspect of New Orleans jazz culture

Lee Friedlander : the little screens by Saul Anton( Book )
3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 116 libraries worldwide
Lee Friedlander's 'The Little Screens' first appeared as a 1963 photo-essay in Harper's Bazaar, with commentary by Walker Evans. Six untitled photographs show television screens broadcasting eerily glowing images of faces and figures into unoccupied rooms in homes and motels across America. As distinctive a portrait of an era as Robert Frank's 'The Americans', 'The Little Screens' grew in number and was not brought together in its entirety until a 2001 exhibition at the Fraenkel Gallery in San Francisco. Friedlander (b. 1934) is known for his use of surfaces and reflections--from storefront windows to landscapes viewed through car windshields -- to present a pointed view of American life. The photographs that make up The Little Screens represent an early example of this photographic strategy, offering the narrative of a peripatetic photographer moving through the landscape of 1960s America that was in thrall to a new medium. In this astute study, Saul Anton argues that The Little Screens marked the historical intersection of modern art and photography at the moment when television came into its own as the dominant medium of mass culture
