Homage to Richard Avedon

“I’ve worked out of a series of no’s… no to exquisite light, no to apparent compositions, no to the seduction of poses or narrative…  I have the person I’m interested in and the thing that happens between us.”  – Richard Avedon
 

I am inspired by Avedon’s oeuvre.  As an artist, he was profoundly creative in his approach to photography.   This collection is my attempt to emulate his work and style.  In my studio with only a white backdrop I attempt to capture the simple identity of my subjects, and ask the audience stop and take notice of the person before them.
