In the pantheon of photography, there is always room for someone that has spent the last 50 years taking pictures of America as it has grown and changed. The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art decided to honor Lee Friedlander, just such an artist, with a giant exhibit.

With an ouvre that vast, the gallery decided to go for a roughly chronological setup, showing the artist's work from the 60es to present times in a series of walls that, mostly, each come with a thematic setup. When I say that you easily get lost as to what the next wall should be (left or right?), you'll just as easily guess that Mr. Friedlander shows a remarkable unity of style from the first to the last picture.
