I was introduced to Richard Avedon’s stunning photography thanks to a post that a fellow blogger wrote on an image featuring the ‘first supermodel’ between 2 majestic elephants. I immediately loved him.
He didn’t only do Fashion. You can see history through his photography. From images of the working class in New York and Italy, to Civil Rights protests against the war, to racial segregation and Debutante Balls in the South, and even the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Here are some images from the Richard Avedon Foundation.
