Richard Avedon

This is the first ever photo I bought. Nastassja Kinski by Richard Avedon. At age 21 when I had received my first weeks wages in a new job I spent the whole lot on this print and lived for a week on cheese and beans on toast. I love his incredibly dramatic images. Avedon, having guest-editing the April 1965 issue of Harper’s Bazaar, quit the magazine after facing a storm of criticism over his collaboration with models of color. Wow!
