I've read quite a few of Avedon's photography books before, but many of them lacked a clear focus or provided context for viewers who aren't his contemporaries. Surprisingly, this book did not really come together for me until the finale essay (a part of most photography books which I generally skip, so that I can come to my own conclusions about the work), where the writer explained the evolution of Avedon's portraiture process alongside the political subject matter which dominated the portraits themselves. I fully admit that American history is not an area where I feel comfortable (mostly due to disgust, as well as general boredom), so Avedon's politically charged subject matter won't strike as strong a note with me as with most other viewers, but the essay really helped to elaborate on the social climate, political movements, and strange personalities who Avedon chose to photograph. I'll always be more interested in his fashion photography, but the photographic techniques which he pioneered as art in this series do have a lot to say and I'm sure as I learn more about the subject matter I will come to appreciate the portraits even more.… (lisätietoja)

Many of these protraits are familiar to me, since I've seen quite a bit of Avedon's wor through other books, but I really like that this diverse collection is brought together thematically. Women in general have always been a big inspiration for Avedon, so it is no surprise that throughout the periods of his work these was always a feminine focus. What is surprising (and shocking to some) is the inclusion of a few men within the book; gay men, but men none the less. Elton John's portrait, with the outstretched punch and sparkling gown, is one of my favourites in the whole collection because it showcases so clearly his feminine side and how he had to fight for it. He may not be a chick, but you go girl!… (lisätietoja)
