About

Portraits by Richard Avedon and an Essay by Harold Rosenberg. The Noonday Press, A Division of Farrar, Straus and Giroux, New York, 1977. 2nd Ed softcover. Richard Avedon was an American fashion and portrait photographer. He worked for Harper's Bazaar and Vogue, specializing in capturing movement in still pictures of fashion, theater and dance. An obituary published in The New York Times said that "His fashion and portrait photographs helped define America's image of style, beauty and culture for the last half-century." A collection of austere portraits of personalities including: Dwight Eisenhower, Truman Capote, Rose Mary Woods, and Andy Warhol. The book demonstrates Avedon's aim to retain the sitter's identity and solidity of being without using any special effects.
