Chuck Embrey found this little video from a couple of years ago. Two things: Didn't realize Lee Friedlander was quite so advanced in years as he evidently is, not that that matters; and, I honestly don't think I've ever heard his voice before.
I can't disagree with the moderator's appraisal of Mr. Friedlander, except to note that Elliott Erwitt ain't dead yet. They come from different traditions, Friedlander from fine art (albeit the subversive, counterculture variety) and Erwitt from photojournalism (Magnum).
Run time is 9:43. I assume this is just a sampling of a much longer program. When the moderator says "I think that's a good note to end on," I was thinking, "What!? No it's not!" Seems unlikely they needed all those water bottles for a less-than-10-minute talk.
Nice to hear Lee Friedlander's voice.
(Thanks to Chuck)
