Richard Avedon on Black and White


Saw these snaps by Richard Avedon and had to post. Gorgeous.

I seem to be on vintage photography buzz as of late? I guess such things never loose their appeal…. Avedon is one of my faves – such an exhilarating mixture of energy and glamour.
Interesting fact: Fred Astaire’s character in Funny Face, Dick Avery, is based on him. Now you know.
