For better or for worse, the car holds a special place in American culture. Lee Friedlander's newest photography book, 'America by Car,' aims to capture the feeling of driving on freeway after freeway.

The car has long been a subject in photography, but the 200 photographs in 'America by Car' are through the perspective of the driver. Therefore, the vehicle interior is itself a character in all of the shots, making each print that much more interesting to look at.
