Product Information

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. This copy is signed by Avedon.
