Lee Friedlander: Jazz Portraits

In the 1950s, Lee Friedlander became a photographer for Atlantic Records and produced many renowned album covers. We are featuring jazz portraits from his new book, American Musicians.
Mr. Friedlander is considered one of the most important photographers of the current era. He has authored 17 books in the last 32 years, and his photographs are in many of the world’s major museum collections.
He was born in 1934 in Washington State. He studied at the Art Center in Los Angeles, and besides the Atlantic Records work, he was a commercial photographer and teacher at UCLA, the University of Minnesota and Rice University. He has won three Guggenheim Fellowships and five National Endowment for the Arts grants. In 1990, he was given the prestigious John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Award.
