Avedon's spectacular work and career are chronicled in this book that accompanies a major retrospective of his photographs at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. Essays by exhibition curator, Jane Livingston, author of The New York School, and Adam Gopnik, art critic for The New Yorker, give insight into Avedon's work and juxtapose his career with events in his life. Both essays are lavishly illustrated with images drawn from the full range of Avedon's work "There are over 100 photographs in the body of the book as well as 400 illustrations in a checklist for the Whitney exhibition."--the publisher.
