Richard Avedon is another photographer who has influenced my work and my future plans in the area of photography. His pictures are an amazing record of human being. The way he engaged with his subject is almost impossible. It is obvious that Avedon was obsessed with human nature and was inspired by history of literature and art. He passion to theater, portrait galleries and museums turned his obsessions into creative portrait work. The beautiful contrast and sharpness of his photographs evidences his technical darkroom skills. Avedon loved studio work. He managed to create full of life and sophisticated portraits of famous individuals of our time. Every picture tells a story, because it was captured in the right moment. Avedon definitely had a gift to catch the important moment of time and the ability to set his subject at ease in order to create unique, true and full of expression photographs.
