Lee Friedlander Framed by Joel Coen

LUMA Arles, France

Joel Coen exchanges his film sets for Lee Friendlander’s archives and becomes a curator for an exhibition at LUMA Arles. Using photographs from both the early days of the photographer’s career in the 1960s and his more recent projects, the American director imagines an encounter with his work, in which numerous echoes emerge between the play with framing and the caustic panoramas of American society. Influenced by Friedlander, Joel Coen unrolls almost six decades of prints, exhibiting both the portraits of jazz artists from the 50s and the chaotic shots of New York passers-by captured by the American in the mid-20th century.
