Large format with beautifully printed black & white portraits by Avedon. Great book, absolutely recommended.
“For Avedon’s program is supraindividual. He wants to portray the whole American West as a blighted culture that spews out casualties by the bucket: misfits, drifters, degenerates, crackups, and prisoners-entrapped, either literally or by debasing work."
