Lee Friedlander – America By Car

American photographer Lee Friedlander loves a good road trip and has for many years photographed scenes in the rear view mirrors of various hire cars. The mirrors are clever framing devices that Freidlander uses to create oblique perspectives on the American landscape. 192 of these square format images taken during the past decade are currently on display at the Whitney Museum of Art.
