Richard Avedon

20 May


“And if a day goes by without my doing something related to photography,

it’s as though I’ve neglected something essential to my existence,

as though I had forgotten to wake up.

I know that the accident of my being a photographer has made my life possible.”

Richard Avedon

I decided that I would start a new tradition..Inspiration Thursday! Its all around us, and also the main drive behind most..probably all of my work.

I thought that It was only right to start with the one and only, Richard Avedon. He revolutionized photography, and portraiture. He brings out emotion that the models themselves don’t know exists inside themselves. He brings out the truth in a person through his lens.

Here is 1 of 9 peices of a documentary on him, and his work. It is amazing..period. Watch it!
