Dov Friedman: American and European Architecture
Photographer Dov Friedman is contributing approximately 1,500 images depicting architectural works in the United States and Europe to the Artstor Digital Library. This collection will focus on historic architecture of New York City, as well as sites in Central and Eastern Europe. In addition to documenting architecture in cities such as Vienna, Austria and Budapest, Hungary, Friedman has also photographed the painted monasteries of the Bucovina region in northeastern Romania. Built in the 15th and 16th centuries, Orthodox monasteries, such as Dragomirna, Putna, and Sucevita, are adorned with exceptional exterior and interior frescos. Considered masterpieces of Byzantine art, seven of the monasteries were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1993.
Friedman specializes in architectural and urban landscape photography. He received a BFA in Photography from Pratt Institute and currently works as a Photo Editor at The Wall Street Journal.
