What Becomes a Legend Most: A Biography of Richard Avedon by Philip Gefter

£25.00

Available

Description

In his acclaimed portraits, Richard Avedon captured the iconic figures of the twentieth century in his starkly bold, intimately minimal, and forensic visual style. Concurrently, his work for ‘Harper’s Bazaar’ and ‘Vogue’ transformed the ideals of women’s fashion, femininity, and culture to become the defining look of an era. Yet despite his driving ambition to gain respect in the art world, during his lifetime he was condescendingly dismissed as a ‘celebrity photographer’. This is a biography of this luminary – an intensely driven man who endured personal and professional prejudice, struggled with deep insecurities, and mounted an existential lifelong battle to be recognized as an artist.
