herb-friedman“From the moment I picked up a camera, I was fascinated by the world around me and the visual image”

Herb Friedman began photographing in 1969 while a graduate student in Psychology at Temple University. His interest in photography led him to study with Michael A. Smith who teaches classic black and white photography.


While in Philadelphia, he showed his work at numerous galleries including The Painted Bride and The Photographers Place. He had a series of his work published in Creative Camera in December 1971. He has also had work published in the Painted Bride Quarterly in 1982 and in American Photo in December 1992.


Herb currently lives with his very creative and forever gardening wife, Karen, in Bridgehampton, NY. His current passions include photography of Beaches, Dogs, and Flowers (mostly from Karen’s gardens) and people of unique interest that catch his eye. Herb was born in New York in 1945.
