“Lee Friedlander Inspired” by Avard Woolaver

16 Jul
This set of images is titled “Lee Friedlander Inspired.” This is my take on some of his ideas and motifs—reflections, shadows, signs, cars, self-portraits.
To me, his work conveys randomness, detachment, irony, and, most of all, a great sense of visual humour. He took elements usually regarded as obstacles and made them inherent and important parts of his images. So, in short, these images are my spin on Friedlander. They are meant to be the result of inspiration rather than imitation. I hope to have an exhibition of the work and possibly produce a book sometime in the future.
You can see the full set of images (60 in all) on my Flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/avardwoolaver/sets/72157634092912385.

      Thanks so much, Ragnar. Friedlander remains one of my strongest influences.
