Browsing through Richard Avedons’ photos all I can say is, “OH MY GOODNESS!” I am so in love. The creativity and alignment his subjects are positioned and posed are very sophisticated and classically photographed. In the beginning his portraits had mainly been used for editorial publication and throughout his career his pictorials have been published in numerous fashion magazines. When he had made himself known in the art world, his photos turned quiet vigorous in activity and theatrically.
Look at the dramatic and obscurity he brings to his photos. Also, Avedon’s rich contrast is extremely captivating. I think this would be a great artist to reference because his work in very influential for us not to be boring.
