Nothing Personal by Richard Avedon and James Baldwin.
Published by Dell Publishing, 1965.
Softcover, 88pg. B&W
9.8" x 7.4"
Nothing Personal published a year after John F. Kennedy's assassination, the book highlights the civil rights movement, protest politics of both the Left and the Right, and American identity in that era. Avedon juxtaposes an American Nazi Party salute with a naked Allen Ginsberg, placing between these poles figures such as segregationist George Wallace, scientist-turned-antinuclear-activist Linus Pauling, members of Daughters of the American Revolution, and William Cansby, a man born into slavery. - SFMOMA
