More than 300 photographs are presented in two sections. The first features images of children that the artist has known: being bathed or fed, laughing or crying with family members, posing with pets or mugging for the camera. The second section presents works from Friedlander’s years of photographing people on the street: children in parades, sitting in cars, reflected in storefront windows.
Noteworthy photographs include a pair of small girls holding a rattlesnake; a boy with a large frog and a small trophy; and a pair of small girls dressed like Queen Elizabeth considering Allen Ginsberg meditating in Central Park.
