Today is the 83rd birthday of the photographer Lee Friedlander. You know him because he is the photographer that took those nude photos of Madonna before she was famous. I am excited about him because he is from Aberdeen, like half my family. His work is so intimate and personal, you become invested in the subject’s lives. The world is a better place because he is in it.
