Richard Avedon: In the American West
Published by Harry Abrams in 1985, this rare signed first edition of Richard Avedon’s In the American West documents a body of work that was originally exhibited at the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth, Texas. Avedon’s series is the result of a five-year commissioned project that saw him travel through twenty-one states, photographing ordinary people to produce a masterwork of contemporary portraiture. The publication includes a foreword by the artist and an essay by Laura Wilson. Complete with the original acetate dust jacket, this volume is far superior to the various later reprints.
