Made in France. Photographs by Richard Avedon. Text by Judith Thurman. Fraenkel Gallery, San Francisco, 2001. 56 pp. Tall quarto. First and only edition of 5000 copies. Hardbound with tipped-in image on front and rear boards. Linen spine. No dust jacket as issued. 40 quadratone illustrations.



This extraordinarily printed collection stands as an important rediscovery of a small but central body of work in the career of one of the world's best known and beloved photographers. The Richard Avedon images presented here, many for the first time, were made in Paris for Harper's Bazaar during the 1950s. What is particularly special about this presentation is that the images are being reproduced to the exact scale of the engraver's prints made for Avedon by the master printer Andre Gremola, and are uncropped, on their original mounts, with all of the artist's notations on both front and back. Thus, they provide a remarkable portrait of the working methods of one of the most influential fashion photographers in history. This oversized book, measuring 12x15 inches, is being printed without compromise with tritone plates throughout, and will be a stunning object in its own right. With this body of work, which includes the photographer's iconographic Dovima with Elephants, Cirque d'Hiver, 1955, Avedon broke radical new ground in the history of photography He documented the moment in which postwar France was striving through fashion to reclaim its cultural eminence. Judith Thurman, a writer for The New Yorker contributes the book's introduction."--the publisher
