“Lee Friedlander: Western Landscapes,” at the Fraenkel Gallery, S.F. through December 23

Lee Friedlander continues his longtime fascination with the American West landscape as he has throughout his career. 

"Stinson Beach, California," (2003), Lee Friedlander

The approximately 50 photographs in this exhibition came to fruition after he took several road trips during the 1990s and the 2000s. Most have not been viewed or published before.

"Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona," (1997), Lee Friedlander

Featuring Death Valley, Yosemite, the grand Tetons and more, the black and white, square-format works came from the use of large negatives and a wide-angle lens. 

"Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming," (1993), Lee Friedlander

The show coincides with the publication of “Lee Friedlander: Western Landscapes,” a large-format book published by the Yale University Art Gallery.

Through December 23. 10:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m., Tuesday-Friday; 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturday. Fraenkel Gallery, 49 Geary St., S.F. (415) 981-2661,
