Freund's work is a critical, empathetic, sometimes ironic or humorous response to American places and people. He has produced an extension series of photographs of gas stations in the American landscape. Freund chooses mainly the point of view from inside looking out, the same point of view as if he had just stopped by to put air in his tires or buy a Dr. Pepper. For Freund the gas station becomes more than a pit stop, but a starting place to allow us to look at the changing and often humorous American scene, while we watch the rise and fall of the price of a gallon of gas. 1982
