Imprint to fEP from tape previously covering price. Penciled numerals of "10/6" on front cover verso. ISBNs in text & on DJ rear inner flap. Text/BRAND NEW w/ spot soiling to upper fEP & trace creasing to left leading edge on one fold-out. Collection of portraits, some fold-outs, from the lens of Richard Avedon (1923 - 2004). Introductory essay by Harold Rosenberg. The portraits are of notables of notables of our time, and are posed in the sense that the sitter, or sitters, "knowingly confronts the camera"; Avedon's fidelity to objective truth, in direct opposition to fashion photography, renders the collection a portrait of all of us. Particularly outstanding are the the final series of his father, Jacob Israel Avedon, as he succumbed to death; these were taken between October 1969 and August 1973. Less portraits of a father taken by his son, than portraits of all of us; best said by Richard Avedon himself, his works express "what it is to be any one of us.". N° de ref. de la librería 002084

Reseña del editor:

In a collection of austere portraits of personalities including Dwight Eisenhower, Truman Capote, Rose Mary Woods, and Andy Warhol, Avedon demonstrates his aim to retain the sitter's identity and solidity of being without using illusionistic effects
