Another one of a young woman has all the poised regality of an Avedon.
Avedon distilled the picture frame to nothing but his subject against a white backdrop—wrinkles, bad teeth, and all.
There were lavish vacations, trips to the Oscars, pricey artworks from Warhol, photographs from Avedon.
The signature of each photographer is what we determine as being a portrait by Avedon or Penn before even recognizing the subject.
Each shoot must have been an insane photographic circus, with Avedon as the ruthless (and charming) ringleader.
His collaborations with Avedon earned them the nickname "Aradon."
