Arnold Crane by Lee Friedlander (1974)

The photograph titled “Arnold Crane” was taken by the artist Lee Friedlander in Chicago. Unfortunately, without the photograph’s specific year, we can only refer to the city where it was taken.

In the image, we see a man seated comfortably, with one leg crossed over the other, on a small round table that doubles as a chair. The subject is bald, smiling, and sports a suit with a patterned tie, as well as distinctive white shoes. He is situated under what appears to be a floor lamp with multiple lampshades, which creates an interesting geometric pattern within the image. A plate with a partially visible object rests on the small table next to him. The setting looks like a modestly furnished room with patterned carpet. The photograph is black and white, adding to the timeless quality of the scene.
