A superbly assembled survey of Friedlander's abiding fascination with the American social landscape across six decades

This volume presents 155 photographs spanning 60 years of the artist's exploration of the built environment in the American social landscape. Collectively these photographs add to one of the broadest and most nuanced visual explorations of America, and, individually, they are filled with the kind of intellectual humor and observation for which Friedlander has become celebrated. Along the way, of course, Friedlander has expanded our ideas of what constitutes real estate, just as he continues to compel us to reconsider how photography reveals essential aspects of our lives over time. The mirror that Lee Friedlander holds up to us is his mirror and everything reflected in it has the common traits of his way of seeing--each picture is definitively a Friedlander picture.
Real Estate is an essential collection of one of Friedlander's lifelong subjects, and takes its place alongside other classic titles of his quest to photograph the ever-changing social landscape: The People's Pictures (2021), Signs (2019), The American Monument (1976/2017), Letters from the People (1993) and American Musicians (2001).
