Friedlander’s Car Windows

A good friend of mine recently showed me some photographs she took from an airplane window  and the window frame was included in many shots and it, of course, reminded me of Lee Friedlander’s Hassleblad pictures from inside his car.

This last one is particularly devastating. A sculpted cactus, in the  real desert, by the side of the road, as homo sapiens continues to burn fossil fuels on his lonely, mindless, journey to nowhere.
