The name of Richard Avendon knows everyone who is connected with photography. There is no doubt he is one of the most famous photographers of all time who like no one else could capture on his pictures the mysterious play of light and shadow, detailed B&W high-contrast portrait. Each of his photo is a masterpiece, so alive, like a dialogue between models,viewers, himself.
If a day goes by without my doing something related to photography, it’s as though I’ve neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up. ― Richard Avedon
