Quote from a newspaper:

Richard Avedon, one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century, died Friday at the age of 81. In September, he suffered a brain hemorrhage while on assignment for The New Yorker in San Antonio, Tex.

Avedon, who elevated fashion photography to a modern art form, was best known for his dramatic black-and-white portraits of the rich and famous.

All I know is that this is one shitty year. From Newton dying earlier on this year, now Avedon. What a tragic year. Two of the most influential fashion photographers of our times have pass away. But as the cycle will go on and new photographers will arise. Who's the next greatest?

Don't really know where I was when he died since I just found out now. He was one of my favorite photographers. Thought I'd post some pictures.

Thanks for telling us. That's sad...but I guess he has led a pretty interesting life!

I love the Marilyn Monroe photo's he has taken. Her poses still look so fresh and relevant today!
