Artist Statement

Robert Freidman
Robert Freidman’s work has been showcased in solo exhibits in Florida, Nebraska, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, Oregon, Illinois, Louisiana, Missouri, Virginia, and New York. Internationally his work has been shown in Chile.

“During the Spring of 2005, my father spent seven weeks in two hospitals and a rehabilitation facility due to two minor heart attacks and a fall which required hip replacement surgery. I photographed to pass the time during daily visits and to pay attention to what I was seeing. I wanted to preserve it for later.

It was a difficult time but also a time of heightened family intimacy. I was more attuned to subtleties of my parent’s relationship and our particular family traits. The prints, made months later, help me remember and appreciate. I presume these photographs will resonate with people beyond my family and me. The work is part of a larger body of photographs of my parents. I’ve been photographing them since they moved to Florida five and a half years ago.”

Robert Friedman is a resident of Tamarac, Florida and is the recipient of a $15,000 award from the South Florida Cultural Consortium.
