I must warn you that the insights deal with how Avedon approaches people - there is no technique, no discussion of lighting, nothing technical at all. For me, this is exactly what I wanted from the book. However, if you expecting any of these, you'll want to look elsewhere.
What this book does offer is a wonderful overview of the thoughts behind "In the American West". You begin to feel how Avedon approaches his subjects and how he connects to them. It also gives a feel for the final product came about from both an organic and a very well planned, envisioned if you will, composition.
I recommended this book to anyone, who is looking to find a sence of meaning to their craft as a artist. This book makes to think about yourself, and what you can do to give depth to your work.
I wish other art book would explain the process of their work. Then more people would enjoy what they see instead of brush it to the side.
It's a really good book, with astonishing picture from Avedon assistents.

Nice book, interesting to read about this project and the stories of the people portrait in it. However, the layout and design don't complement the story.Published on March 18, 2009 by M. Hirez
