About the Author

Richard Avedon is widely considered one of the most important and influential photographers in history. He was born in New York in 1923, and after studying photography at the New School during the late 1940s, he spent 20 years as a photographer for Harper's Bazaar, creating many signature fashion images that remain recognizable to this day. He also worked for Vogue and contributed to publications such as Look and Life, becoming famous for his original work with portraits of artists, powerful politicians and anonymous subjects in his series, In the American West. His portraits for The New Yorker are among the most iconic of the twentieth century. Avedon died in 2004 after recent exhibitions at the The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and the Fraenkel Gallery, San Francisco. The Richard Avedon Foundation was established in 2005.
