Friedlander's professional work honed his craft, made him a traveler, and introduced him to a widening circle of friends. One friend was Walker Evans, whose work had shown that ordinary America was full of messages from the people. Another was Robert Frank, whose book The Americans, published at the end of the 1950s, extended the robust artistic tradition that Evans had initiated in the 1930s. The book proved that a photographer could step aside from the demands of commercial work to make a fiercely independent, fully realized work of art. The examples of Evans and Frank helped Friedlander to see that photography's creative potential was not exhausted by the utilitarian aesthetic of magazines.
