Saw a wonderful exhibit of Lee Friedlander's work at the Cleveland Museum of Art. It's a retrospective traveling out of the MoMA's permanent collection. 

Friedlander is such an fascinating person and has such a Surrealist eye -- you'll notice each of his images is layered and layered with meaning and filled with surprises and humor. I also appreciate the way he brings his own strong personality to everything he shoots -- and always shoots what he wants to shoot. 

I find his life, images, and way of seeing incredibly inspiring. And whether it's been acknowledged or not, it's clear that he has had a huge influence on many photographers of my generation.
