Last year I was looking at Lee Friedlander photos and noticed that he made an image in Akron, Ohio where I'm currently living. I made a mental note to wait for winter and for fun go back and document the scene, now 25 years after he made his image. Here is the link to Lee Friedlander's 1980 view of Akron, Ohio. If I had come across this scene on my own I would not have been moved to make an image. For me, Friedlander has been a difficult photographer to appreciate, unlike Josef Koudelka or Danny Lyon or Winogrand, but over the years much of his work has grown on me. What's your take on his image? I'll leave you with this: The Holy Roman Empire was neither Holy, nor Roman, nor an Empire. Discuss amongst yourselves.
