When: Thu., Dec. 5, 7-8 p.m. 2019
You are invited to join photographer and art historian Jeffrey Martz for an evening talk and presentation celebrating the life and work of some of the most influential practitioners in the history of photography. American photographer Richard Avedon was best known for his work in the fashion world and for his minimalist portraits. He shot for Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue, demanding that his models convey emotion and movement, a departure from the norm of motionless fashion photography. From the 1960’s on, Avedon was also dedicated to extended portraiture projects exploring cultural, political, and personal concerns.
