    Art Brokerage: Lee Friedlander American Artist: b. 1934. Friedlander was born in Aberdeen, Washington, in 1934 and was introduced to photography at age fourteen. He studied with Edward Kaminski from 1953 to 1955. While living in Los Angeles his passion for music led him to photograph jazz musicians throughout the city and to meet Nesuhi Ertegun, a founder of Atlantic Records. Soon after moving to New York in 1956, Friedlander was hired by Atlantic to photograph recording artists such as John Coltrane and Ray Charles for album covers. Friedlander's early work was inspired by Eugène Atget, André Kertész, Walker Evans, and Robert Frank. He was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1960 and again in 1962 for photographic studies of the changing American scene. In 1972 he was awarded an individual fellowship in photography by the National Endowment for the Arts. During the 1970s Friedlander worked on a major project documenting American monuments. He received a Friends of Photography award in 1980 and was the first photographer to receive the MacDowell Medal for Lifetime Achievement in the Arts in 1986. In 1990 he received a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Award. Numerous solo exhibitions of his work have been held throughout the United States and overseas, and he has published more than ten books of his photographs. Listings wanted by Art Brokerage.
