The Master of Photography!
For me, Mr. Avedon is at the heart of what the Portrait of a person should communicate. That is: compassion, seriousness, humor, beauty and last but not least Essence. A depth to the image. There is/was No Other than Richard Avedon to convey this message.
For me the images he created over his 60 year career is not so much the images of Twiggy, Penelope Tree or the other supermodels of their time, it's the ones of the actors/actresses,musicians, politicians, writers and simply put the Citizens of this World that are the Amazing ones/images that I personally Love. And will Still Love come 60 years..!!
I am getting personal here, when I look at Mr. Avedons work it floors me how the talent of his is So Personal, So Non Judgemental. I get a sense of curiousness from his part about the actual Human Being that he is shooting, that is like The Never Ending Story; a story of his that are/was never going to end.
The International Center of Photography is showing an exhibit of this Artists work. It is up Now- September 6, 2009. It is called: Avedon Fashion : 1944- 2000.

The new issue of PHOTO is out!!
Stunning cover as shot by Patrick Demarchelier with one of his muses: Natacha Poly.
Some ideas for exhibitions one can view now is:
Bob Carlos Clarke at The Little Black Gallery in New York until the 3rd of July.
A memorial tribute to Helen Levitt at Laurence Miller Gallery in New York. It will present a series of passages, in both color and black-and-white, from her extraordinary 70-year career. Featured will be her pictures of animals, which were among her earliest as well as last pictures taken; a little-known series of portraits taken on the subway using Walker Evans’ camera; children’s street drawings; elderly folks in conversation; and children at play, the photographs for which she is most well-known. Helen Levitt’s classic and rarely seen silent film, In the Street, from 1944, will be shown as well.
and we missed Hellen van Meene at Yancey Richardson's Gallery. But I think one could go (again if in New York) and explore this wonderful gallery.
and honestly So Much More. I'll do a part 2.
Buy it HERE.
