A master of American fashion and art photography turns his artistry to capturing--in a series of photograph portraits--the cowboys, roustabouts, drifters, gamblers, bar girls, and others who characterize the modern Western experience.

Richard Avedon was one of the most influential photographers of the second half of the 20th century, and his portrait work comprises an authoritative record of our era. As a staff photographer for Harper's Bazaar and Vogue, Avedon redefined fashion photography. In 1992 he was named the first staff photographer in the history of The New Yorker.
Laura Wilson is a photographer whose previous books are Hutterites of Montana, Watt Matthews of Lambshead, and Avedon at Work. She lives in Dallas.
John Rohrbach is senior photography curator at the Amon Carter Museum, Fort Worth.
Here, Avedon abandons fashion photography in favor of this collection of "strong, occasionally shocking portraits...of miners, drifters, wildcatters, slaughterhouse workers, and adolescents" (LJ 1/86).
