AVEDON: WOMEN by Joan Juliet Buck and Abigail Solomon-Godeau
Over his sixty-year career, photographer Richard Avedon was renowned for his distinctive, transformative eye. Women were often his subject, through his fashion work for Harper's Bazaar and Vogue and in his portraiture of both the famous and the unknown. What might have been pictured as prosaic or unattractive through another photographer's lens was presented by Avedon as unconventional, surprising, and sometimes revelatory. A testament to the deep respect Avedon had for his subjects.
