"Memory, transience, identity, and the impossibility of capturing anything more than a fiction or a mask in photographic portraiture--Friedlander put all these issues slyly into play with Self-Portrait," writes Vince Aletti in Roth, et. al., The Book of 101 Books, "along with a snapshot-style looseness and idiosyncrasy that sit well in this simple, straightforward design."
