Lee Friedlander at the Corcoran

For the nation's bicentennial--1976--the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C., commissioned eight photographers to shoot in and around the United States' capitol. Over the course of the year, the work was exhibited at the Gallery, two artists at a time. In conjunction with the exhibitions, eight booklets were produced, one for each artist's work. Lee Friedlander was one of the photographers and here is the booklet produced of his work for the show.

The project is described in greater detail on the second spread.

24 pages, including covers, saddle-stitched; 8 x 8 inches.
