Richard Avedon passed away in 2004. It doesn’t feel that long ago though. But what always surprises me when it comes to Richard is how long his career was. For example the picture above was shot 1955. Nineteenfiftyfive!
I have watched the Avedon documentary Darkness and Light numerous times. There you can see his early work from when he started in the 40’s! Nineteenfourtees! :)
Now, off you go and watch Ted talk about the Dovima photograph :)
