Mr. Avedon has been a major force in the industry since the damn 40's. He's one of the special souls who were born to create art and found his voice very early in life. The wealth of imagery he has created over his career thus far exceeds any explanation; it needs to be viewed and appreciated.
This particular set is worth mentioning for it's marriage of macabre, fashion and sexuality. Also of note is the nearly-vintage film look of the images. The colors are very true, but seem dreamy. There might not be a definite storyline here, and it's not entirely necessary for any of this. This is fashion, with a very cool twist, and the techniques and compositions are ageless.
Special thank you to Haute Macabre for posting the original set and keeping this wonderful collection of work viable and alive.
