Favourite (famous) photographer 1: Richard Avedon

Credited by the New York Times with defining America’s image of style, beauty and culture for the last half-century, Richard Avedon’s portfolio of photographs are almost beyond comparison. Photos ranging across the realms of reportage, fashion and portraiture, Avedon’s images are a document of the country that stamped its life and culture all over the 20th century.

Keen photographers and photo anoraks will already be aware, so I won’t continue to bore…have a look at the Richard Avedon Foundation website and marvel.
