The random words or numbers you see on buildings or street furniture fascinate me. They must have meant (or still mean) something to somebody at sometime. Maybe I should collect them and create a big book of them later in life, after all it was good enough for Lee Friedlander.
Letters from the People is a 480 page glossy hardcover big book by Friedlander displaying random graffiti, letters and numbers on walls, glass or buildings. As is his way though, they were photographed to tell a story or many stories at the same time. I enjoyed looking at this book during my research of his work for a recent essay and am obviously influenced.
