Check it out: Lee Friedlander

New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s recently opened exhibit “Lee Friedlander: A Ramble in Olmsted Parks” features 36 photos of Frederick Law Olmsted-designed parks that Friedlander shot over the past two decades. Late in his life, Olmsted kept a home and office in Brookline and did significant work in Massachusetts, including designing Boston’s Emerald Necklace. So, not surprisingly, Friedlander’s series includes this 1993 photograph “World’s End, Hingham, Massachusetts.”

“Lee Friedlander: A Ramble in Olmsted Parks,” Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City, Jan. 22 to May 11, 2008.
