Product description

No photographer had a more serious and deeply felt response to the political and cultural impact of the 1960s and early 1970s than Richard Avedon. In four monumental photographic murals (reproduced in large gatefolds) and many related portraits, he portrays Andy Warhol's gender-bending Factory, with Viva and Candy Darling; Abbie Hoffman and the radical agitators of the Chicago Seven; Allen Ginsberg's family, friends and fellow artists; and the US Mission Council in Saigon alongside searing portraits of victims of the Vietnam War.
