An Avedon A Day…

Picture 169


I realize I posted an Avedon photograph yesterday, but I can’t  seem to get his archives off my mind so I’ve decided to hell with it—I’m going to post “an Avedon a day” for the next week (or for however long I see fit…).  This shot is of 1950’s mannequin Sunny Harnett wearing a cape by Jean Desses.  It was taken in August of 1954.  Stunning!

    It’s too bad you’re not here in SF– the MOMA has an Avedon exhibit on right now and it is simply stunning! I loved loved loved it.
