"I've photographed just about everyone in the world," Richard Avedon (1923-2004) once reminisced, but the world might be forgiven for best remembering his photographs of women. In Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, The New Yorker and books, His sometimes deceptively simple portraits caught the essences of models, actresses, and total unknowns. With each of these approximately 120 images, one is reminded of Avedon's state that a portrait is not a likeness: "The moment an emotion or fact is transformed into a photograph it is no longer a fact but an opinion." As evidenced by this grand pictorial, Avedon's artfully stated opinions stay with us.
