One of our favorite photography books of all time is 'In the American West' (1985) by Richard Avedon. During six years Avedon photographed 125 people that for some reason told the story of the traditional West of the United States. Although the work got criticized because some people who thought the work gave a narrow view of the country, we love the denim vibe that is connected to it. Yesterday Denimology posted about the work of Nate Bressler and it somehow reminded me of some of Avedon's pictures from the eighties. Have a look here. Picture above by Nate Bressler as published by DM.
