Exhibition | Richard Avedon


The New York Times has put together an outstanding digital exhibit featuring the images of famed fashion photographer, Richard Avedon called Through the Eyes of Richard Avedon. The digital collection is just a small sample of the larger exhibition Avedon Fashion 1944-2000 underway May 14 - September 6, 2009 at the International Center of Photography. Avedon was not only ahead of his time in his industry artistically, he also pushed the boundaries of fashion in other ways such as insisting that he be allowed to use diverse models in his work, including the photo of Donyale Luna above in 1966.
