This year at Paris Photo Hamiltons will exhibit not only in the main sector of the fair as usual at Stand C26, but also with a special installation in "Prismes".

The principal highlight of Hamiltons presentation at Paris Photo this year will be Richard Avedon and photographs from his In The American West series, in celebration of Hamiltons’ renewed partnership with The Richard Avedon Foundation.

For more than fifty years, Avedon’s portraits have filled the pages of the finest magazines, galleries and museums worldwide. His stark imagery and brilliant insight into his subjects’ characters made him one of the most celebrated portrait photographers of all time. As Avedon’s reputation grew from early in his career, so did the opportunities to meet and photograph celebrities from a broad range of disciplines. Avedon’s ability to present personal views of public figures, who were otherwise distant and inaccessible, was immediately recognized by the public and the celebrities themselves.

Throughout his life Avedon maintained a unique style all his own. Famous for their minimalism, Avedon portraits are often well lit and in front of white backdrops. When printed, the images regularly contain the dark outline of the film in which the image was framed.

In 1979 Avedon began working extensively on a commission from the Amon Carter Museum of American Art to create a series of portraits of ordinary people living in the west of the United States. Over the course of five summers, he traveled the “American West” by car, finally producing a series of studio images of drifters, carnival workers, and working-class Americans. In The American West is now recognised as one of his most intimate, moving bodies of work.
