Dov Friedman: American and European Architecture
Photographer Dov Friedman has contributed approximately 600 images of architecture in the United States and Europe to the Artstor Digital Library. This collection focuses on historic architecture of New York City, as well as sites in Central and Eastern Europe.
In addition to documenting architecture in cities like 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 received a BFA in Photography from Pratt Institute and currently works as the Technical Director, Visuals, The Wall Street Journal.
