Photographs and foreword by the gifted Avedon with a background essay by Laura Wilson. Fantastic collection of b&w photographic portraits completed with the support of the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth Texas. 104 large format photographs printed on high quality paper. Designed by Marvin Israel and Elizabeth Avedon. Portraits of blue collar westerners captured with respect and dignity. This book is said to be Avedon\'s best. He was making an attempt at getting away from his glamorous celebrity photographer image with these portraits. Nicely printed.
