Here are some images by Richard Avedon that I find very compelling. He has influenced many of today’s fashion photographers because he was the first starting to shoot models outdoors and interacting with the “real world”. Much of fashion photography before Richard Avedon used to consist mostly of studio photography. We look at Vogue today and we are used to women modeling clothing while walking on the streets of New York but that was something revolutionary brought on by Richard Avedon.
