Richard Avedon: His Pictures Rock!

Richard Avedon

Richard Avedon is one of those photographers that I actually read up on because I liked his photography so much.  Not only are his photos something that look incredible but he is also an American photographer – which is very strange because most of the time, these photos like this one here are done by European photographers.

Richard was actually born in NYC and while he was Jewish-Russian, he actually attended Columbia University and he started in photography in 1942, which is incredible because way back then, there were not a lot of photographers that would do something like this.  Although this incredible guy died in 2004, his pictures will live on forever.

Another cool thing about this particular photographer is the fact that he is also an author.  He has wrote so many different things that honestly, if you wanted to know more about how to become a photographer like him – you could certainly do that!
