In Boston, I visited the Museum of Fine Arts exhibition, Avedon Fashion 1944-2000.
Richard Avedon became a fashion photographer, shooting for Bazaar and Vogue magazines while he was in his early twenties. In his earliest images, the models are radiant with movement, and often shown in ironic settings, perhaps at the expense of showcasing the clothing.
My favorite photo of the exhibit: the model, while beautiful,
is as unique and alien as the street performers around her.
