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.From Library Journal:
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).
