Richard Avedon


I’ve always loved Richard Avedon’s work. What an incredible career and bounty of images he’s captured and put into the world. I thought it would be interesting to share some of the man himself along with these poignant quotes:

Sometimes I think all my pictures are just pictures of me. My concern is… the human predicament; only what I consider the human predicament may simply be my own.
-Richard Avedon

My portraits are more about me than they are about the people I photograph.
-Richard Avedon
