This copy is boldly signed by Avedon on the title page. Folio. 162 images. In 1946, Avedon had set up his own studio and began providing images for magazines including Vogue and Life. He soon became the chief photographer for Harper's Bazaar. Avedon did not conform to the standard technique of taking fashion photographs (showing no emotion), instead he showed models full of emotion, smiling, laughing and many times in action. In 1966 he left Harper's to work as a staff photographer for Vogue, he then proceeded to become the lead photographer there and shot most of the covers from 1973 (until 1988). Notable among his fashion advertisement photograph series are the recurring assignments for Gianni Versace (starting in 1980). He then started branching out, photographing mental patients, the Civil Rights Movement, Vietnam War protestors, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and, of course, his two famous shoots of The Beatles. Then the cowboys and miners. In short, Avedon was always interested in how portraiture captures the personality and soul of its subjects. Then he was being distinguished by the use of his large prints. He became a staff photographer for The New Yorker in 1992 and has won many awards for his work. He died in 2004, at 81.
