    This August, 1955 photograph of the model Dovima with elephants, provided by The New Yorker magazine, was taken by famed portrait photographer Richard Avedon who died on October 1, 2004 at the age of 81 in Texas. One of the most celebrated U.S. fashion and portrait photographers, Avedon was the first staff photographer ever hired for The New Yorker, a magazine that until editor Tina Brown took over in the 1990s traditionally did not run photographs.

    Very Sad. Another LEGEND has died.

    Did you all know that the movie FUNNY FACE starring Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire was about Avedon? The photographer that Fred Astaire played was based on Avedon's life at the time.
