Avedon’s striking fashion photography and minimalist, emotion-filled portraiture broke boundaries and, for nearly a half century, helped define Americans’ perceptions of beauty, politics, and power. This exhibition, for which NMAJH will be the only U.S. venue, unites two seminal bodies of work by the influential American Jewish photographer: a series of four portrait murals inspired by the revolutionary atmosphere of the 1960s and early 1970s, and a series of 68 portraits entitled The Family, originally published in Rolling Stone magazine on the eve of the 1976 election.
