This meticulous reprint of Richard Avedon and James Baldwin’s Nothing Personal, explores the contradictions of the American experience, juxtaposing subjects from celebrities to mental asylum patients.
Deploying both image and text, Avedon and Baldwin examine the formation of identity, and the bonds that both underlie and undermine human connection. An accompanying 72-page booklet features a fresh essay by Pulitzer Prize-winning critic Hilton Als, and many of Avedon’s unpublished outtakes, correspondence, preliminary layouts and ephemera.
