Avedon at Work.
In the American West.

Photographs by Laura Wilson. Text by Larry McMurtry.
University Of Texas Press, Austin, 2003. 132 pp., 91 duotone illustrations, 9x11".

"Laura Wilson's fascinating book about the evolution of Richard Avedon's great portrait project In the American West is an exceptional effort, rendered more appealing by the fact that she is a fine photographer herself...Her book is a notable contribution to photographic history and, perhaps, to photographic theory as well. She shows Avedon working, selecting, engaging, watching faces and torsos, and finally, clicking. The book richly documents not only the formality of what he attempted-he was a man working with a concept-but also the instinctive, opportunistic nature of the endeavor. In the American West retains its singular force, and it's good to have Laura Wilson's documentation. She shadowed the Shadower, and showed us as much as can be shown of how his work was done."—Larry McMurtry.
