Janet Borden, Inc. presents Merry Christmas from Lee Friedlander, a new exhibition of photographs by Lee Friedlander. On his many trips across the U.S., Lee Friedlander has amassed pictures of cars, walls, landscapes, and people. These are recurring elements in Friedlander’s portrait of America. Now, he has sifted through them, in search of photographs celebrating Christmas. In true Friedlander fashion, we don’t get Hallmark visions of snowy fields, or cherubic carolers. Instead we get grimacing Santa masks, Barbie in the crèche, and neglected garlands, filthy from being left up all year.
